I’m sure you heard the comments from Gov. Jerry Brown and state Attorney General Javier Becerra with regard to the Trump administration’s immigration policies. Both the governor and the attorney general were defiant and spared no insults as they talked about President Donald Trump. You might be wondering if Jerry Brown was always so accommodating to refugees desperate to come to the United States.
With just a few minutes to go before Friday’s market closed, I was putting some notes together while, as usual, I had Fox News on the air. Suddenly there’s a national news alert that there’s a hostage situation at the Yountville Veterans Home. I’m hoping that it ends peacefully. I was surprised that I had never learned that the Yountville home is the largest such facility in the United States. Back to the market which was – ho hum – having another big day, up more than 440 points.
You probably know by now that President Donald Trump’s senior economic adviser, Gary Cohn, has announced that he’ll be leaving his White House post at the end of March. It’s a key position, perhaps with more influence over economic decisions than any of the Cabinet members. Starting Thursday evening, the economic talking heads said that the most likely replacement would be CNBC financial celebrity Larry Kudlow.
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".
