Now that the tax reform bill is one step closer to becoming law, here is one more appeal to our state lawmakers: this bill hurts South Dakotans. The current bill would repeal a deduction for school teachers that spend out-of-pocket for classroom supplies. South Dakota’s teachers are already the lowest paid in the nation. This bill stretches their checks even thinner, or costs our children needed school supplies.
It is appropriate that what may be a defining moment in the Republican Party civil war revolves around a senate race in Alabama. Alabama is where it all began. It is where, 50 years ago, the GOP embarked on a path that transformed the political landscape of the country and brought the party to its current straits.
Lindsey Graham can scream all he wants about being a small government conservative, but he is a Marxist, plain and simple. In a Breitbart interview this week hyping his proposed Graham-Cassidy Obamacare replacement, Graham ridiculed Bernie Sanders’ Medicare-for-all as single-payer socialism, but Graham ignored the fact that his own proposal is perhaps best described as small government communism.
Here's a look at this morning's low temperatures around the region. The coldest temperatures in at least 22 years! Also, the big winner was Crockett with a low of 10° -- the coldest temperature in southeast Texas. #KHOU11https://t.co/9y6HqeWUgx
Extreme cold will re-freeze roads after sunset. This is a developing and deteriorating driving situation! Solar radiation kept many surface roads wet today, but with no solar influences at 6pm, slush hard-freezes and roads get really sketchy. Very serious. https://t.co/pt9Xw08oLu
Temperatures continue to tank across the state. 26 degrees -- in the middle of the afternoon (!) here in Houston. Wow. Very hard, pipe bursting freeze expected tonight with temps in the upper teens and low 20s. #KHOU11https://t.co/IChlMsnIjI
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".
