WASHINGTON, June 24, 2017 - The topics were as varied as the crops grown in the South, but research and labor stood out as common threads at the three-hour listening session held today by the House Agriculture Committee at the University of Florida. It was mostly farmers and ranchers from Florida and Georgia who made the trip to Gainesville to comment on the 2014 farm bill as well as make suggestions for the 2018 farm bill.
WASHINGTON, June 22, 2017 – A void was created when the U.S. pulled out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Now, U.S. lawmakers are pushing the Trump administration for clues as to how the U.S. will increase trade in the Pacific Rim without the massive trade pact.
WASHINGTON, June 21, 2017 - Just five years ago if you wanted to eat crickets, your best bet was to look around in the garden. Now you can find them in protein bars and tortilla chips on the shelves of popular grocery stores like Hy-Vee or Mom’s Market. And more cricket farms are popping up, too, in places like France, Canada and even Benton County, Iowa as the demand potential is incentivizing start-ups as well as a few established growers to enter the market.
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".
