NEW YORK -- Half a century ago, young men, some still in their teens, boarded transport ships like the U.S.N.S. Walker, and set sail for Vietnam. Jerry Barker remembers the trip like it was yesterday. He describes the trip as "long and boring." He just stayed up on the top deck and played cards -- gin rummy. "I haven't played cards since," he said. During the 20 days on board the Walker, they forged lifelong friendships, thought about the war ahead, and the life left behind.
LAS VEGAS -- California Senator Dianne Feinstein proposed a nationwide ban Wednesday on devices that can turn rifles into rapid-fire machine guns. Feinstein has long supported gun control measures, but with little success. Stephen Paddock was able to pour hundreds of rounds into the crowd of concertgoers below his hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino because the devices - bump fire stocks - are legal. "You have to stand up and say enough is enough," Feinstein said.

@steven_ramey@RyanKadro@MBUSA They tell us safety is the utmost importance and that when used properly these systems can add to the vehicle's safe functioning. But there's also a lot of competition among makers for the coolest and most advanced systems.
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".
