By now, we’ve all sponged up round after round of commentary on President Trump’s purported remark that Haiti and various African countries are “s—holes” whose people should not be let into the United States. Some of the rounds have involved attempts to deny or obfuscate the statement. The disclaimer would be easier to believe if this were not exactly the sort of thing he often likes to say. I have been misunderstood on the subject of Haiti myself.
To the day he died at 101, Oliver Hubbard was ahead of his time. By the age of 21, he had served in World War I, graduated from the University of New Hampshire, and turned a Boy Scout project raising hens into a family business that would eventually become a multinational company. Hubbard Breeders was a leader in genetics research and other poultry technology that paid off in a big way. Hubbard and his wife, brothers, and sons all became generous donors, largely focusing on science and UNH.
@bdmcclay Diana Schaub has a related argument about learning to accept mortality, because there are only so many such heartbreaks/pet lifetimes that fit into a human one. And here's a beautiful piece about dogs, although I don't think that she spells it out there: https://t.co/DEd8Y91t5S
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".
