A pair of young Israelites stand near the popcorn stand, posing for photos. One wears the bejeweled breastplate of an Israelite priest and the other has carefully wrapped a multicolored cloth around his head, tucking a feather into the folds of his turban. They drape their arms around each other’s shoulders and smile for the camera. “When the sun sets,” a loudspeaker calls, “the Pageant will begin.
Andrew Anglin, the neo-Nazi website publisher who called for an online “troll storm” against a Jewish woman in Montana, is arguing in court that the barrage of phone calls and anti-Semitic messages were not a threat — and she could simply have ignored them. Many of the messagers were anti-Semitic and Holocaust-related. Anglin is also arguing that the court take into consideration the fact that he denies the Holocaust ever happened.
Just over half of all adults in the United Kingdom pray, even those who say they’re not religious, a new poll shows. One in five adults who say they’re not religious still pray — and half of those say they think God hears their prayers. A poll done by Christian aid agency, Tearfund, found that personal crisis or tragedy is the most common reason for praying among non-believers. Half of those who pray believe “God hears their prayers,” according to a Guardian report.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
