A flat, grassy park in western Colorado; a colorful playground of ladders and cupolas on which a few children clung and swung; cement restrooms where pre-emptive lines were just now forming. A few dozen people milled about, or was it 100? When a friend and I drove the hour and three quarters from Carbondale to Grand Junction for the second annual Women's March there, my expectations were slight.
So, CMC wants "meaningful and permanent immigration reform." What does that mean besides amnesty for everyone here illegally? What do we need to change? The over 1 million legal immigrants we allow to become citizens every year are not enough? Big business and their shills in the liberal drive-by media keep extolling ever more immigration, legal or otherwise. NPR couldn't say an unbiased word about illegal aliens if their license depended on it.
By Alison Osius, Special to The Denver PostLong ago, I used to take two little boys to our town library. Poking around among the stacks, I’d turn to show them something, and see … empty air. I’d peer around, then hear shouts through the door. They’d crept away and were whizzing by on their scooters. My mother always brought us home bags of books from the local library, especially in summer, or she’d take us along to choose our own. We were also read to, including while potty training.
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".
