They have gathered here upon rows of neon plastic seats every other Sunday for the last two years, appealing to the federal government for help after two Protestant churches were closed by local officials in Muslim-majority communities in the outskirts of Jakarta. Officials claimed both churches, GKI Yasmin and HKBP Filadelfia, lacked proper permits, though the Indonesian Supreme Court has ruled otherwise.
Burial practices wreak havoc on the environment. Embalming fluid contains formaldehyde, a known carcinogen. Metal caskets don't biodegrade, and concrete vaults require natural resources for manufacturing. Then there are those those pesky herbicides used to keep cemetery lawns looking nice. Suffice it to say, we're in need of better options. Fortunately, green burials are on the rise. One option is planting a tree using your loved ones' remains. But what if you don't have access to garden space?
Though the encampments at Standing Rock have gone and President Trump’s executive order has cleared the way for construction, the fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline continues. And right now, it’s taking place inside an art gallery. When you enter the Hammer Museum, you’re greeted by a huge mural of flowing lines in various shades of green, red and blue, intersecting at both ends of the wall.
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".
