I used to be of the mindset that we should do more to curb gun violence in our country. I’ve come to the realization that’s probably never going to happen.Thus, as a realist, I’m now starting to believe our government should just issue us all guns and ammunition.How would this be funded, you ask? Many say after a mass shooting that such events wouldn’t have occurred if one or more of the victims would have been armed.
GLASGOW — When you're one of four teams left in the playoffs, you can expect to be playing a top-tier team. Based on rankings, the next test couldn't be tougher for Glasgow.The Scotties (10-3) host undefeated Danville on Friday night. The Admirals are coming off a convincing win over Lexington Christian and are ranked No.
Thanksgiving — a time for reflection, food and family. But let's be honest, it's also a time when many of us get into lengthy debates around the dinner table about those taboo topics like religion and politics. We try to avoid it, but it ends up happening anyway. It's been a crazy year. There have been so many polarizing issues brought to the forefront, and we all have to be getting a little fatigued of the 24-hour news cycle of negativity. Yes, I'm a journalist, but I get tired of it, too.
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".
