Against the backdrop of Larry Nassar and the worst sexual abuse scandal in sports history, local institutions are reviewing policies, and advocates are working to enact the culture shift they say is needed to protect the vulnerable from the powerful and perverse. Acts of sexual assault or abuse are committed by individuals who are responsible for their actions, said Deborah Stoll, the director of the YWCA Northwest Ohio's rape crisis center.
Chynna Fifer is the city of Perrysburg’s acting prosecutor, despite a 4-3 council vote rejecting the city administration’s nomination of her as the city’s next prosecutor. Ms. Fifer, who was working as an assistant Wood County public defender, was appointed to fill the duties of P. Martin Aubry, the city’s longtime prosecutor, while he is away from the office. Mr. Aubry will be retiring at the end of March, and the administration hopes to appoint Ms. Fifer to replace him.
A Lucas County Juvenile Court judge denied a motion to suppress evidence filed on behalf of Demetrius Wimberly, 14, the only youth who has not entered a plea in connection to the death of a motorist killed when a sandbag thrown from an overpass crashed through a vehicle on I-75. Rashya Cunningham, the Wimberly youth’s attorney, argued that the four youths charged in Mr. Bryd’s Dec. 19 death were not legally stopped by police, but Judge Denise Navarre Cubbon denied the motion.
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".
