Sponsors say Proposition 57, the Public Safety and Rehabilitation Act of 2016, will save taxpayers money by making nonviolent felons eligible for parole earlier and improve fairness by having judges, not prosecutors, decide whether juveniles are tried as adults. The title promises public safety when it could result in the early release of repeat offenders.
Toward that end, Greene suggests that the modern day prince "use words of great resonance but cloudy meaning, words full of heat and enthusiasm." And: "Instead of the complicated explanations of real life, return to the primitive solutions of our ancestors, to good old country remedies, to mysterious panaceas."
Hillary Clinton's campaign team warns that damaging leaks of campaign staff emails - leaked via the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks and probably hacked by Russia - are proof that Russia wants to tilt the election in favor of Donald Trump. Be it noted Team Clinton had little trouble using registered agents for foreign governments to raise large donations for the presidential campaign.

The women's stories fit into a niche - the incidents aren't so serious that a woman would have made an official complaint about them at the time they occurred. What happened was wrong, but there's something gratuitous about applying 2016 standards for political candidates to the actions of a 1980s businessman.
There are too many faults stacked in Donald Trump's towering inferno. Trump certainly broke with etiquette by inviting to the debate Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broaddrick - three women who had accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault. To his die-hard fans, Trump demonstrated that he is not afraid to get bloody in a partisan fistfight.
The Hoosier who describes himself as a "Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order," never seemed like a natural fit for the casino owner's ticket. The straight-and-narrow governor has this way of projecting his view that it's beneath critics to tie the GOP ticket to Trump's remarks because, well, everyone knows Trump will say anything.
Hillary Clinton has promised that in her first 30 days as president she will propose a constitutional amendment to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court's 2010 Citizens United decision, which she characterized as a "disaster for our democracy." Because Clinton has a better-than-even chance of being elected president, who am I to argue?
The political press corps has known Bob Stern as the straight-arrow president of Los Angeles' Center for Governmental Studies who helped Jerry Brown create the Fair Political Practices Commission in 1974. Since the center closed its L.A. offices in 2011, Stern seems to have developed a devious side - or was it there all along?
Mine is that Trump has done well among white high school graduates because he acts the way people think they would act if they were billionaires. If he didn't pay federal taxes, Trump told Hillary Clinton after she suggested he has not released his tax returns because he has something to hide, it's not a problem.
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
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".
