The victim kept begging her employers to reconsider the forced weekly interaction with her attacker. They refused. Stunned by all the women this week posting #MeToo on their social media platforms? I'm not. Sexual harassment and sexual assault didn't start in Hollywood with Harvey Weinstein. And it won't end there. Sadly, most of us have our own accounts of abuse. But it's not easy for women to come forward. Women fear they won't be believed. They fear for their jobs. They fear for their reputations.
It's no secret that Fall Creek Place is experiencing some gentrification, as more businesses open, more upscale houses are built and more affluent individuals and families quickly scoop up the housing stock. The owners of longtime Indianapolis real estate company Flock Realty found themselves in quite the predicament this week after two questionable ads surfaced with language many perceived as racist and classist.
It's not every day that one of my best friends is bullied on Twitter — by name — by the leader of the free world. Yet this past week, President Donald Trump called out "SportsCenter" co-host Jemele Hill as the reason ESPN ratings have "tanked." Jemele and I have been friends since college, and we spent a chunk of our professional careers as colleagues at the Detroit Free Press. She is a sister to me.
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".
