While orchestrating genocide against Jewish people, Heinrich Himmler would write home to his wife Margarete and daughter Gudrun portraying his day working for the Nazi regime during World War II as rather unremarkable and quite mundane. I was reminded of this a few days ago when listening to the graphic account of a Syrian woman who recalled one of the occasions she was forced to stand in front of her tormentor for the daily ritual of abuse.
The torture victim stood in front of her tormentor wondering what treatment would be meted out this time in the notorious Branch 215, also known as Raid Brigade run by military intelligence in Damascus. Would it be a merciless beating or would it be another sex assault on her already broken body?
Kazakhstan could play a pivotal role in a proposed meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong in May, it emerged last night. The unprecedented summit follows months of volatile exchanges between the two in speeches and on the social networks. Now that the White House has confirmed Trump is ready to meet Kim the big question is “where in the world?” since it is inconceivable either will be comfortable in travelling to Pyongyang or Washington.
Spare me from idiots who can't seem to understand human rights are for everyone regardless of nationality, skin colour or faith. A #Syrian woman raped in the #Assad regime's prisons deserves as much help, support & protection as the Yazidi women who suffered at hands of #Daesh.
@abdiragemohamed Not at all. You are a provocative little worm and I've given far too much attention to you already. You clearly have issues with women, are incapable of empathy & to even cast doubt on what those women told me about their rape experiences speaks volumes about you. Now jog on..
@abdiragemohamed@Partisangirl@Alyssa_Milano@Noor_and_Alaa Do you have some deep seated problem with women? Are you incapable of feeling any concern for the women I interviewed? Does your feelings extend to all humans or just one specific group? if anyone is alarmed it's me about you & how selective you are towards human rights.
@abdiragemohamed@Partisangirl@Alyssa_Milano@Noor_and_Alaa Again you ignore women I've spoken to. I've been visiting Syria since 1992, have contacts on the ground. I condemn ISIS & actions but Assad is supposed to be a president & yet he's overseeing on an industrial scale abuse of women. Why have you no empathy for these women?
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".
