The Rio Olympics are finally almost here, which means more summer sports than you can handle. And if you're not a fan of traditional Olympics coverage — or if you just can't get enough of the Olympics — there are plenty of podcasts to listen to during the Olympics. Because can you ever have too much of a good thing? (I mean, realistically speaking, yes, you can — but it's always nice to have options, right?)
There's no single way to be a feminist, and there's no single journey on your way to becoming a feminist. Nevertheless, there are some things that feminists did in elementary school that, looking back, were definitely a sign they were destined to be feminists someday. Because feminism is something that you grow into over a lifetime, and the seeds are usually there pretty early.
How does it go when people try to pick up members of their same sex? Not when they're in a setting where it's expected, like a gay bar, but when the pick up happens just out on the street? Thanks to two videos from the pranks and social experiment YouTube channel "whatever," we can all find out. In the first video, a young women tries approaching other ladies in public places and attempting to get their number. In the second, a young man does the same with other men.
Never trust rich people. Or white people. Or Americans. I say this as a white American. Don't do it.
Also learn more about the history of Hawai'i. Because you should know more than whatever they told you in school.
This chapter in American history is something I'm trying to learn more about and there are a lot of fascinating dimensions.
But I also keep returning to the fact that rich people basically enabled the toppling of a legitimate government. Which is terrifying.
A very good thread.
I will also add that overthrow was also helped along by wealthy, landowning, American born/descended haole who destabilized the country's finances through a lot of shady business means and their own private militia. https://twitter.com/feelingfisky/status/953708406145105920
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".
