Sam's Club will close or repurpose dozens of stores in early 2018, laying off thousands of employees. The number of stores affected is 63, not 250; the number of workers involved is around 10,000, not 100,000. Walmart, the world’s largest private employer, started 2018 with a series of high-profile announcements about company benefits and layoffs.
The "Tide pod challenge" is a real viral phenomenon whereby people bite into Tide brand laundry detergent pods. In January 2018, millions of cable TV viewers had their first encounter with the “Tide pod challenge”—an online and social media phenomenon in which someone with a camera (usually a teenager) films themselves biting into one of the laundry detergent pods. “A government watchdog is expressing concern over the dangerous misuse of a laundry detergent,” CBS News reported on 12 January.
Seeing lots of headlines and reporting about jobs growth at IDA companies but no mention of the fact that net growth was lower last year than in 2016. Surely “IDA jobs growth slows” would be an equally salient and informative angle. This table even came from the IDA press release https://t.co/RjKw0mZ7o8
@HangBlaa@dpfunke “Fake news” is being used here in the strict sense of deliberate, monetized misinformation + fabrication of news stories/impersonation of news outlets. Not as a broad description of all inaccurate content. I don’t see any provision in the bill that would jeopardise MSM.
As water charges appear to be consigned to history, let's please avoid revisionism like "One million people paid their charges", before it takes hold.
In fact, 989,000 people/households paid *at least part of at least one bill*, between April 2015 and May 2016.
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".
