I applaud the president for laying out the case against North Korea in such a high profile venue, including valid generalizations and specific anecdotes that testify to the horrors of the Kim regime, as well as calling on the nations of the world not to turn a blind eye. Sometimes in our hyperpartisan environment, people need to acknowledge that just because their political opponent says something, does not automatically mean he or she is wrong. Criticize, but give credit when it is due. 3.
For days after Hurricane Harvey first hit the Houston area, the floodwaters kept rising. With thousands of people in the storm’s path, The New York Times wanted to hear directly from those who were affected by Harvey and its aftermath. We asked people to share their experiences by sending photos of the storm’s effect on their neighborhoods or by leaving us voice mail messages describing their circumstances. Here are some of their stories, edited for length and clarity.
I’m a black woman who EARNED a double-major from a top 10 school in four years, while working 20 hours during the school year and 60 hours during summers, and went on to EARN an MBA. Nevertheless, I’ve spent my entire adult life having barely-educated white people question my qualifications and would gladly take on the burden of whiteness. Of course, I doubt you would gladly give it up. Really great news for all the Jareds and Beckys with the 3.2s.
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".
