An intelligence test. Which is better: to lower the already lower-than-average pay of firefighters and increase their departures, and have to continually train new ones to replace them (at high cost while paying overtime to fill constant vacancies), or leave things alone and find other ways to reduce our county budget deficits?Another intelligence test: When you start taking money out of the hides of our first responders, you lose them.
In psychiatry it's called "folie a deux," or madness of two. It's when one delusional person pulls another person into his delusions which they then share. They reinforce each other's madness.It is not frequently seen in psychiatry, but we are seeing the syndrome writ large in our Republican legislature and cabinet as legislators and cabinet members unembarrassingly fawn and gush unctuously over their great leader.
For our benefit, and the sake of transparency in his 2018 campaign, it would be helpful to have some information as to why our Representative Kevin McCarthy:1. Voted for a healthcare bill that would hurt those who can least afford medical treatment.2. Voted for a bill that would remove insurance premium subsidies for those unable to afford medical insurance.3. Voted for a bill that would take away insurance from millions of additional individuals above and beyond those now uninsured.4.
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".
