PHILADELPHIA -- At a time when many cities across the country are debating whether monuments should come down, one is going up in the City of Brotherly Love. For nearly three years, sculptor Branly Cadet's task has been putting an unknown legacy back together detail by intricate detail -- and casting it in bronze. "Part of my job as a sculptor is to help not only celebrate, but also acknowledge narratives that may have been lost in the past," Cadet said.
Five months ago, when my producers Emily Rand, Rayner Ramirez, and I began discussing this investigation, I was unsure of what we would uncover. Emily is an experienced, award-winning investigative journalist, whereas my experiences as a reporter are rooted in bearing witness — sharing with the world scenes and stories of people affected by forces beyond their control.
PHILADELPHIA -- Margaret Jerrido is the archivist at Philadelphia’s Bethel AME church, where stored away in boxes are historical gems. They’re called Information Wanted ads. They were written by newly freed slaves looking for lost family members who were sold or ran away. “I didn’t even know they were there,” Jerrido said.
Asked if Pres. Trump should be investigated for sexual assault allegations made by more than a dozen women, @PressSec says: "Senator Franken has admitted wrongdoing and the president hasn't. I think that's a very clear distinction." https://t.co/Pz92wv3Mfm
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".
