Best Music on a Show About Economics & Politics Village Voice Best of NYC 2005For fifteen years, Doug Henwood did a radio show on WBAI, New York, covering economics and politics. When the interim program director, a mediocrity named Tony Bates, wanted to cut it back to every other week, he quit. For more on all this, see here and here. Fortunately, the show is still broadcast on KPFA, 94.1 FM Berkeley, Thursdays at noon. Here are the archived shows.
This week, The Enquirer takes a look at a handful of players who could see their roles expanded in Saturday night's second preseason game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Kansas City Chiefs. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. at Paul Brown Stadium. Fourth-round pick Josh Malone won’t be caught making brash predictions boasting immediate success in the NFL or making comment about a need to run with the first team in the preseason. He prefers to repeat a common phrase among the conscientious rookie crowd.
At the end of every season, there’s an image that sticks with me. It’s not the raising of the championship trophy, the players coming off the bench to celebrate with their teammates or fans jumping in jubilation. No, the moment that grabs my attention is the one where players who have just lost their final high school game console or are consoled by each other. I’ve been there. I’ve felt that pain. It’s a deep void, one that isn’t easily replaced.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
