When it comes to sexual harassers, the list grows like Pinocchio’s nose. Its steady expansion suggests we as a society need a quasi-formal way for harassers to acknowledge their misdeeds, express contrition, make amends, and move forward. It’s a pertinent matter for discussion in a week when Charlie Rose, the CBS coanchor and “60 Minutes” contributor who also hosted his own independent talk show, has been multiply accused of groping, putting himself on full display, and making lewd phone calls.
Wednesday heralded another transition, but hopefully not a turning point, in Lawrence, which has seen a remarkable educational renaissance over the last six years. Jeff Riley, the superintendent and receiver who has done so much to drive educational improvement in this Merrimack River city since 2012, announced he would be leaving at school year’s end. A spirit of collaboration had been essential to the effort he led, Riley said.
It’s decision time for Republicans, nationally and in Alabama. Do they believe the credible allegations against Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore and disavow him — or do they dismiss his odious behavior and rally round this creep of a candidate for the sake of preserving the GOP’s slender Senate governing margin? It’s a clash between moral and political imperatives. Still, Democrats shouldn’t gloat.
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".
