A National Rifle Association spokeswoman spoke out Sunday against raising the legal age to buy assault rifles — an idea that President Trump has recently backed. Dana Loesch told ABC’s “This Week” the group is “incredibly clear” in opposing requiring buyers of semi-automatic weapons to be 21, up from 18 under current law. Loesch resisted the idea even as she insisted the NRA has no disagreement with Trump.
Gov. Rick Scott said on “Fox News Sunday” that he opposes the idea of giving teachers guns, which Trump has been pushing since the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Fla.“I disagree with him,” he said. “I believe you’ve got to focus on people that are well trained law enforcement that are trained to do this.”Scott has put out his own safety package, which proposes $450 million for school security including posting law enforcement officers at every school.
City Controller Scott Stringer wants millions in extra cash from the Battery Park City Authority to go to fixing crumbling NYCHA buildings. In an interview Sunday on the John Catsimatidis AM 970 radio show, Stringer said NYCHA could benefit from $400 million over a decade in surpluses from the organization that runs the tiny downtown neighborhood, where residents and businesses make payments in lieu of taxes. “It would be the first new revenue stream that NYCHA’s had,” Stringer 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 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".
