Most Mexican-Americans that have taken a DNA test seeking their ancestry, have discover to their surprise/shock to have a mixture of Spanish (European), Arabic, Hebrew (both Middle Eastern) and Indian (Indigenous). So why are we classified/identified as Latinos? Latino is European. The Romans (Latins) occupied the peninsula of Hispañola/Spain which also includes Portugal, for 600 years. The Moors (Arabs) for 800 years. And the Jews (Hebrews) for over a 1,000 years.
This recent lockdown at Calexico High School caused by a student’s threat of a campus shooting — and it was reported that there were firearms kept at his home — reminded me of a speech I wrote and gave at IVC in 1969, on the danger of having a gun in your house/car.
Current events: This guy Alex Jones far right/reactionary Texas Radio talk host, has aired some outrages lies. Well, unfortunately he is in his constitutional right to do so. That is, as long as he operates under the disclaimer claus of “Entertainment Program Show.” And not as legitimate news. Yet, too many voters actually believe his spin. Just as they have believed for years Beck, Galliger, Hanity, Lavin, Rush and Savage. All featured on our Brawley AM Radio Station. Pues, si!
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".
