Last week as I was reading the Salisbury Post I glanced at the date and realized it was 9/11. The fact that I had just become aware of it made me feel a little bit ashamed. Many dates in American history are embedded in our minds. You have 12/7/1941 (Pearl Harbor); 6/6/1944 (D—Day) and, of course, the 4th of July. Yet for some reason I let 9/11/2001 sneak up on me. I hope this didn’t happen to most Americans. After realizing the day, I quickly turned on the TV to find specials about it.
It breaks my heart to see the America I love be consumed by the hate groups that are trying to destroy it. Like the KKK, white supremacy, Black Lives Matter and others. I think most of these hate groups are not pleased with their own lives, so they take it out on others that have never hurt or done anything to them. I think all of this started in Furguson when a cop killed a black man because he tried to take the cop’s gun.
I would like to know why Duke Power thinks their customers should pay to clean up the mess they caused. They make enough profit to take care of their problems. I wonder how much their top five executors make a year, probably more than most of us make in eight years. A lot of us Duke Power customers are on Social Security and yet they are asking for a 16.7 percent rate hike. Instead of gouging us to death, why not offer a senior citizen discount to those who qualify?
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".
