A national conversation on a still-painful war begins Sunday with the premier of Ken Burns' and Lynn Novick's documentary, "The Vietnam War." PBS describes the series as "an immersive narrative," featuring footage of the war and first-hand accounts from vets on all sides, including the Vietcong. That means that Vietnam veterans who watch the show could experience symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder as they re-live combat.
House tours, popular this time of year, can leave you feeling like a window shopper, longing for more money and more luck to have that house, that view, that furniture. Garden tours, like the ones this weekend during GardenWalk Cleveland, are different. They show what’s possible for anyone with a little plot of earth, some plants, a lot of sweat and, above all, patience. Ideastream’s Amy Eddings visited one West Park participant who's got a passion for daylilies.
EDDINGS: This is "Morning Edition" on 90.3 WCPN. I'm Amy Eddings. Entrepreneurs who want to grow pot to supply Ohio's nascent medical marijuana industry have until May 6th to submit their applications to the state. Aspiring growers must say on their applications where they plan to build their operation. Some communities -- including Cleveland, Lakewood and Lyndhurst -- have excluded themselves from consideraton, with temporary bans in place until later this year.
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".
