Humans of New York is known for eliciting strong emotions in audiences. That’s because many times, the images what Brandon Stanton captures feel so personal to so many. The photo-based project often reflect issues that we as a nation face. That’s exactly the case with his latest image, which features a young woman explaining why we must fight for all 11 million undocumented immigrants.
After Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico, a student – identified only as Michelle H. – set out to save one bird. But eventually, her dorm room became the temporary home of up to 90 birds injured in the storm. Michelle, who lives in Rio Piedras, waited until the storm calmed a little and along with her friends, collected the many birds who were in danger. “75 percent of them were tired and injured,” she wrote on Twitter.
As we learn about the damage Hurricane Maria unleashed on Puerto Rico, those in the mainland United States naturally want to know how their families are doing on the island. But for many, it’s become difficult to communicate with their loved ones in Puerto Rico, which lost 100 percent power on Wednesday afternoon. Before the entire island’s electricity went out, there were reports that Puerto Ricans couldn’t communicate with 911.
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".
