One in five students are struggling to read and the nation’s public education system is doing almost nothing about it. The replacement to the No Child Left Behind law is failing students. The Every Student Succeeds Act, which replaced NCLB, gives power back to the states so that educators can allocate the federal funding they receive as they see fit for its specific needs. ESSA was passed with bipartisan support in 2015. However, these state plans are leaving out a large percent of the student body.
It wasn’t a good showing for Senate Republicans last week. A congressional hearing that addressed free speech on college campuses failed young conservatives, as only three Republican senators attended to make remarks on the issue. Eight GOP committee members on the committee did not show up and Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) didn’t stay long enough to hear the opening statements. The free speech debate on college campuses has disproportionately affected young conservatives.
Today my dad called to tell me that he's addicted to to Cheetos. He decided to reach out to me for counsel. He says it's a little better that he's eating the 100 cal Baked Cheetos & says he is working out so he can maintain his daily habit #reasonswhydadworkshout@ChesterCheetah
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".
