Lock your doors, bar your windows, and get ready to turn your fearful screeches up to 11, because a government shutdown means people are going to freakin’ DIE according to Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif). That’s right, folks. If the repeal of Net Neutrality, the GOP tax bill, or having to pump your own gas didn’t get you, then you have NO IDEA what’s coming for you now. And according to The Hill, Feinstein warns that the thing coming for you is LIFE. “Shutting down the government is a very serious thing.
Pres. Donald Trump has invited Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to the White House as the looming deadline over a government shutdown enters its final hours. According to reports, Schumer’s Republican counterpart, Mitch McConnell, will not be at the meeting. As Trump is known for being swayed by the last person he talked to, one can only imagine what new incredulous deal Trump could come at Senate Republicans with. Share on FacebookShare on Twitter
This is excellent news, so kudos to President Trump and the administration on this one. The administration is taking a positive step for states’ rights and the Right to Life movement, by rescinding another Obama-era move that prevented states from cutting Medicaid funding from Planned Parenthood. The administration is rescinding an April 2016 letter that the Obama administration sent to states warning them that restricting Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood could violate federal law.
I just want everyone to be aware that because of the #shutdown, we all finally died. After Net Neutrality and the GOP tax bill, our bodies just gave out. We're all living a 6th Sense-esque existence now.
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".
