In the Christian religion, it is understood that all human beings, whatever their colour, class or ethnicity, are born with “original sin,” a reference to Adam and Eve’s eating of the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden. Redemption, however, is possible through faith. All who come to Christ in sincerity are received with divine love that surpasses (and bypasses) authority that is human, and therefore corruptible.
Mass murderers are almost invariably male and white. On this account, the media feel free to make sweeping generalizations they would never make if mass murderers were usually female and black. For example, consider these headlines following the horrific Parkland, Florida school massacre: “Toxic white masculinity: The Killer that Haunts American Life” – Salon; “Toxic white masculinity” – The Boston Globe; “Don’t Blame Mental Illness for Mass Shootings; Blame Men” – Politico.
One of the more appealing campaign promises that helped propel Justin Trudeau and the Liberals to a majority government was Trudeau’s pledge to breathe new life into relations between the government and First Nations. The general impression Canadians seem to have had was that relations had stagnated under Stephen Harper’s reign. In fact, Harper oversaw a quite activist, if unsentimental and practical, Aboriginal legislative agenda.
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".
