On Tuesday, President Donald Trump announced plans to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), an Obama-era program that has provided temporary protection against deportation for 800,000 people who came to the United States as children and do not have legal status yet. DACA recipients — who are known as DREAMers — had also been given permission to work, study, and even get driver's licenses.
If you've spent half a second on the Internet, you've seen articles, essays, and all-out Facebook commenting wars about whether or not pronouns are important. Let's set the record straight: They are. Pronouns are a way that we identify with the world, and they move with us throughout our lives. They are SO personal, and using them correctly shows respect for the person we're talking to. Does your BFF want to go by a different pronoun and you have questions?
No, it's not misspelled. It sounds wrong, but—trust us—it’s right! Do you know what it means? The definition: To do something in a friendly way. For example: “He friendlily questioned my use of the word friendlily.” Do you act friendlily toward your friends? Try these 24 little ways you can be a true friend. Looking to find this word on an Italian dinner menu topped with cheese? You won’t. (But these are the words you do need to know at an Italian restaurant.) Think you can guess what it means?
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".
