My mother died last month at home in Great Neck, which is very sad for all who knew her, but she certainly left a lasting impact: a world view nourished by just over 90 years of living life and observing the trends and forces that keep the globe spinning. It seemed to be spinning faster in recent decades, and as Esther Raviv absorbed the changes around her, there were many she didn’t like and more than a few she didn’t fully understand.
ROME - As President Donald Trump prepared for his audience with the Pope Wednesday morning, completing an unprecedented trifecta of visiting the home bases of the world’s major religions in a week, the significance of his first foreign trip is starting to come into focus. Much that was memorable was said and done by Trump in both Saudi Arabia and Israel, but the most ironic policy shift that may affect us all is a new reliance on the Saudis to help protect us.
There is plenty of evidence that President Donald Trump’s top priority, when it comes to world affairs, is to demonstrate that he is not Barack Obama. There is a “new sheriff in town,” a term used by some Trump aides, and one part of his nature is to not lose sleep over human rights or dreaming of a better world held to high idealistic standards. Proud of his slogan, “America first,” he wants to walk away from a host of multinational structures that were Obama’s pride and joy.
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".
