Four years ago, Sandra Holt looked at the body of her lifeless daughter, Nikki, and promised her "justice, no matter what." Nikki, a mother herself, was dead at 27. Earlier that day, May 20, 2013, Nicole "Nikki" Smith was a passenger on a black Honda motorcycle driven through Seaford by her friend Curtis Fletcher, then 22.
During her 2016 bid for president of New Castle County Council, Karen Hartley-Nagle says she got a $60,000 loan from a friend for “living expenses,” allowing her to put all her energy into full-time campaigning. That friend is Brandywine Hundred-resident Patrick Jones, who now claims Hartley-Nagle is refusing to repay the $5,000-per-month loan he gave her in 2016 – money he acknowledges giving with no promissory note or repayment schedule attached to the checks he wrote.
Without a word of debate, New Castle County Council voted overwhelmingly Tuesday night to ask Council President Karen Hartley-Nagle to resign. The symbolic gesture was prompted by Hartley-Nagle's refusal to participate in behavior coaching mandated by a previous vote of council. That mandate followed the county spending at least $135,000 to investigate and settle claims of workplace harassment by Kate Maxwell, Hartley-Nagle's former aide.
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".
