Richard B. Grundy III, the Indianapolis man police and prosecutors called the mastermind of a murderous drug gang, walked out of the City-County Building today basically a free man. As outlined in a plea deal, Grundy received credit for time he spent in jail after his arrest in 2015, and will be on non-reporting probation for his guilty plea to a felony charge of dealing marijuana.
A Boone County judge will hear arguments Tuesday on a motion to dismiss a lawsuit in which Jared Fogle's ex-wife alleges Subway and two partners were negligent in dealing with reports about Fogle's inappropriate activates with underage girls. The lawsuit also claims Subway did not have authorization to use her likeness, or those of the couple’s two children in an advertising campaign promoting Fogle as a family man.
The tearful call caught the Indianapolis man off guard. On the other end of the phone line, the man believed, was his daughter who lives with other family members in the Caribbean. Through a hail of hysterical sobs, the distraught woman explained she had caused a traffic accident and was being held by local authorities. Then she handed the phone off to her attorney. He told the man the victim wanted $4,000 in restitution and all charges would be dropped.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
