The numbers do not lie: Women have long been underrepresented on the United States Supreme Court. In the court's 228-year history, only four of the 112 justices have been female. Sandra Day O'Connor became the first female justice in 1981, almost two centuries after the court's creation, decades after ratification of the 19th Amendment, and years after landmark Supreme Court decisions on women's rights. Now, with three female justices on the bench, gender equality on the court seems within reach.
It's easy to mock Democrats for their interminable squabbles. Here it is, a year past the end of the Democratic primary contest between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, and seven months after Clinton's shocking defeat at the hands of Donald Trump, and the Clinton and Sanders factions are still at each other's throats, fighting bitterly over the future direction of the party.
James Comey's written and oral testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee demonstrated that the former FBI director is a bona fide American hero. This doesn't mean that he didn't make a series of errors in handling the investigation of Hillary Clinton. I believe he did. But I also believe people are fallible, and that when they make a misstep, however grave, this does not foreclose the possibility of them doing the right thing in the future.
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".
