No gun laws or a bunch more gun control laws would have prevented the carnage that took place in Las Vegas. There are just too many firearms out there, folks. Have you ever tried putting toothpaste back in the tube? It's impossible! Likewise, there are just too many guns out there already, and recalling all the guns would leave us vulnerable to criminals who don't follow laws.America is probably one of the most well-armed countries in the world.
Road construction is certainly needed on Highway 58, but when traffic is often coned off with only one lane open for six or more miles and little or no work is being done, shutting down this much highway is pure stupidity.Just last Thursday, I was stuck in a massive traffic jam from Broome Road, eastbound all the way to Tehachapi. The construction company called "Pave Tech" had a skeleton crew working on one drainage insert in the median.
California taxpayers were told by Governor Brown and the Democratic legislature that billions of dollars would be needed to fix our deteriorating roads and to build new roads. So they passed a bill making us pay 12 cents more for every gallon of gas we put in our gas tanks, and raising our car registrations.However, millions of dollars generated from this tax will be siphoned off for their pet projects.
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".
