Shoot first, show your insurance card later. A National Rifle Association-backed insurance policy for members who shoot another person is drawing scrutiny from gun control advocates who argue that the so-called “murder insurance” will embolden people to shoot. Guns Down America released an ad Thursday featuring Sybrina Fulton — the mother of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed black teen shot to death five years ago — in opposition of “Carry Guard” insurance.
He couldn't turn his art into a deal. President Trump's black marker drawing of the Empire State Building will be auctioned off in Los Angeles on Thursday, with experts speculating it could fetch for $12,000. Trump did the basic sketch for an auction at Mar-a-Lago in 1995, the same year he launched a seven-year legal battle to take control of the 1,250-foot icon.
A Pentagon team headed to Niger has been tasked with finding basic information about why four U.S. soldiers were killed there more than two weeks ago. The Africa Command (AFRICOM) will do a “review of the facts” of what exactly happened during the Oct. 4 ambush, Defense Department officials told NBC News. What’s more: officials aren’t sure how the 12-man Army patrol was attacked. “We need to collect some very basic raw facts,” one Pentagon source told the network.
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".
