The Republican tax reform plan would increase the tax burden on graduate students by counting waived tuition as personal income. The House of Representatives' 16 November 2017 version of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act would tax graduate tuition waivers, and has passed the House. As of 20 November 2017, the Senate version of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act keeps the current exemption from taxation on graduate tuition waivers.
Each refugee in Canada receives $3,874 every month from the government under the Resettlement Assistance Program. The document shown in the photograph appears to be authentic. Refugees who receive these benefits are, by definition, not "illegal" (i.e. undocumented.) Most of the listed benefits are one-off, not monthly, and these benefits are for a family of five people, not a single individual.
Saudi Arabia caused controversy in October 2017 by conferring citizenship on a robot named “Sophia,” who appeared at the Future Investment Initiative event in Riyadh. “Sophia’s recognition made international headlines,” wrote the Washington Post, “and sparked an outcry against a country with a shoddy human rights record that has been accused of making women second-class citizens.”And indeed, it didn’t take long for things to turn sour, at least according to one web site.
@lostexpectation@rtetwip The issue here isn't that she said "one of the", it's that she said "to date." She made clear, in her question, that she was making a comparison across time, and not between countries. Taoiseach may have misheard her question, but she didn't make an international comparison.
@lostexpectation@rtetwip "when you mention Ireland and "one of the" you suggesting comparison of Ireland to other countries" - No, that's just not necessarily the case.
There are other comparisons to be made, including the time-point comparison that actually was made in this case.
@lostexpectation@rtetwip It's possible that Varadkar, at the time, misheard or misunderstood the question, of course, and thought it involved an international comparison. But subsequent claims about the question have the benefit of replaying the tape, and therefore shouldn't involve the same mistake.
@lostexpectation@rtetwip I'm not sure I follow. The question put to Leo Varadkar last weekend did not mention international comparison or any other country. The Taoiseach did, in his response. Eoghan Murphy (and others) said "the context of the question was about international comparisons." That's false.
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".
