On Saturday, January 20th, many took the streets for the 2018 Women’s March. On the anniversary of Donald Trump’s inauguration, feminists across the country came together to peacefully show their support for women’s rights. However, this year, the rally took on extra meaning in light of the #MeToo movement. Several celebrities made appearances and moving speeches at the New York Women’s March, including Halsey. The musician has opened up about her miscarriage and mental health struggles in the past.
The 2018 Women’s March took place across the nation and the world on Saturday, January 20th, from large cities to tiny communities. And believe it or not, even the smallest towns had some big turnouts. Case in point? Sandy Cove, Nova Scotia, where half the population participated in their own Women’s March despite the infamous Canadian cold. Yes, 32 of the community’s 65 permanent residents — including a toddler! — marched for women’s rights this year.
At midnight on Friday, January 19th, the federal government shut down. Democrats and Republicans couldn’t reach a decision on a budget deal circling around border security. Democrats want to protect the undocumented immigrants who arrived in the country as children with DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). But Republicans don’t want to move forward without funding for border security. So the government is at a standstill.
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".
