NEW HAMPSHIRE’S looming battle over legislation to impose new oversight on home schooling has gone national, and a Democratic state representative has found herself in the cross hairs of a social media blitzkrieg.“It’s a nightmare,” said Rep. Marjorie Porter, D-Hillsborough. “I’ve heard of things like this happening to other people and it’s awful. I’ve been doing this a while, and this is the first time this has happened to me.
— House Speaker Shawn Jasper made the best case he could for his confirmation as commissioner of agriculture in a four-hour public hearing before the Executive Council on Friday, but only one councilor was ready to pledge his support for Jasper after all was said and done.That doesn’t necessarily mean Jasper won’t be confirmed when the council votes on Wednesday at its regularly scheduled meeting.
- Even as it pours thousands of dollars into the fight, one of the most prominent foes of the Northern Pass hydroelectric project hides its identity and source of funds behind a Delaware-formed 501(C)(4) company.Donald Kreis, head of New Hampshire's Office of the Consumer Advocate, says Protect the Granite State (PTGS) is within its rights to protect the identity of its donors.But Kreis said the source of all funding in the Northern Pass debate should matter to consumers and it is thus...
.@NHSpeaker on his support for Medicaid expansion: I know some of my Republican colleagues will disagree with me ... but I believe at that particular time and with that program we did the right thing for the people of New Hampshire.
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".
