Many state and local officials are calling for a “clean” DREAM Act, one that ensures a pathway to citizenship for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients without making trade-offs with Republicans for increased immigration enforcement or border wall funding. DACA recipients, or Dreamers, are undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children by their parents and protected from from deportation—a status 850,000 people have sought since June 2016.
When the city of St. Louis Park, Minnesota launched its new website earlier this year, the page count was cut down from 2,845 to 500—evidence of “customer-first” content strategy refocused on plain language writing. The city, which has nearly 50,000 residents just west of Minneapolis, originally hired a web coordinator to rebuild the site inhouse, but that person left after several months, leading officials to put out a request for proposals for a new content management system instead.
OXON HILL, Md. — San Bernardino County uses data to identify needs within its public behavioral system and reduce hospital visits, inpatient days and recidivism. A mix of rural and urban areas, the large, diverse Southern California county has residents who live as many as 80 miles away from the nearest hospital, and a quarter of its population of 2 million residents has Medi-Cal—the state’s Medicaid system.
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".
