In January, President Barack Obama rolled out a new plan to make community college free. Based on labor statistics for unemployment and the median earnings level for associate degrees, it’s not surprising that money is being funneled to this type of education. But while the White House’s recent progress report highlights successes in addressing the barriers to education, how this initiative helps job market shortages is not fully clear.
Community Festival has confirmed the first set of artists/bands taking the main stage next year. 2018 will see the likes of Two Door Cinema Club, The Vaccines, and You Me At Six playing the main sets, as well as Circa Waves, Rat Boy, Sundara Karma, Tom Grennan and indie wizards Pale Waves starting the day off. See the video for Pale Waves’ ‘New Year’s Eve’:There was a lack of female artists on the main stage last year, and it seems Festival Republic have continued with the tradition.
Support came from When Young, an alternative pop trio from Ireland, who dominated the small stage of The Garage. Delivering high energy, euphoric beats along with a fantastic stage presence, especially during their upcoming single ‘Actor’; we were thoroughly impressed with this fresh new band and we cannot wait to see what they have in store. It was now time for the indie wizards themselves, and boy were we excited.
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".
