There are many reasons the Republicans' Obamacare repeal-and-replace efforts have, so far, failed. One of them: President Donald Trump, who's best situated to rally the public to "Trumpcare," apparently isn't clear on what the average American pays for health insurance. Here's part of an exchange he had with The New York Times' Margaret Haberman in a lengthy interview this week:Trump: Nothing changes. Nothing changes.
The former U.S. vice president will land at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall on November 30 as part of his "American Promise Tour." He will be talking politics and public service while plugging his forthcoming memoir, "Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship and Purpose." Tickets to the event likely will go fast. Biden, who's been in the public eye for more than 40 years, has become America's "Uncle Joe" for reasons both good and bad.
The great thing about living in Portland at the end of this century will be the ocean views. You probably heard that a trillion-ton iceberg the size of Delaware has broken off from an ice shelf in Antarctica. Not good news, climate scientists say. "The interesting thing is what happens next, how the remaining ice shelf responds," NASA glaciologist Kelly Brunt said.
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
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".
