Usually an election year means important in-depth conversations on big national issues. This year it sometimes seems like we're missing the forest through the tweets. That's not the way it used to be. When I was growing up, national conversations was so comprehensive and provocative that they resonated all the way to our dinner table.
Every species, no matter how small, is crucial to the planet's survival, argues Brian Sheth. Returning to his childhood passion for conservation, the tech finance leader is focusing his philanthropy on helping to maintain global biodiversity. But can he save the Vietnamese saola?

Tim Williamson was born and bred in New Orleans, but after he received his Bachelor's in business from Tulane in 1987, the city didn't offer enough opportunities for a young would-be entrepreneur like him to stay home.

Delon Beckett is wasted while our cameras are rolling on him. He is tripping around his living room drunk while his three-year-old daughter, Jayla, tries to wrestle. She hits his groin so he pushes her away, then he makes for the staircase.
The campaign is mostly about angry whites instead of grave police mistreatment of minorities. The Justice Department issued a scathing report on Ferguson, Mo. a year ago, confirming to the broader public what many blacks and Latinos had been saying for years: that the criminal justice system is rigged against them, sometimes with deadly results.
In my experience, diversity doesn't just "happen." It has to be very intentional. People have to have a genuine desire to make a change. It's hard to tell what's going to happen this time around. There are some bright signs, including the fledgling efforts off the Oscars.
On March 7 and 8, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Corporate Citizenship Center and United Nations Office for Partnerships will host the 6 th Annual International Women's Day Forum.

For hours I travel on roads with potholes big as craters deep into the Democratic Republic of Congo, then walk uphill through the dirt. This is a beautiful country, but poverty, corruption and civil war have left it lacking essential services like roads.
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
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".
