Bullying. It's a word we hear, it's an action we see. It's what many people experience. And it's what many people do. Choosing kindness is a movement with an important message. It’s sad that bullying is a constant action in our society and people don't always stop once they graduate high school or college. I even had to leave a team club because the coach was a bully- discriminating and harassing me to the point where it started to affect my school work.
We hear the word "no" a lot and we, as a society, have continued to explain and impress the meaning and power of the word "no" and why it needs to be respected and treated with the same amount of respect regardless of what you are saying no to. Once society understands that no means no, then what people are saying no to should not matter, just the fact that they said no should. I'm going to take a step back and go to one of the simplest things we can say no to: Cutting in line.
Brookfest is one of Stony Brook's oldest traditions and this year, USG decided to bring international pop band DNCE to campus. I had the opportunity to speak with band member Jinjoo Lee just days before their Stony Brook gig. One thing that JinJoo emphasises is how important it is for their fans to be themselves. DNCE's "look" was not a result of managers and record executives having a powwow about what would sell records, but rather something that came organically.
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".
