As I See ItA looming battle for control of The Scotsman newspaper has developed into an exchange of insults between the paper’s editor and its would-be governor. Weeks of speculation were confirmed last week when Alex Salmond admitted he is part of a consortium attempting to oust the board of the paper’s owner Johnston Press with the former First Minister installed as chairman.
It is just common sense: As with most diseases, preventing opioid addiction is a lot better than treating it. In May, Dr. Scott Gottlieb, the new FDA Commissioner, declared the opioid epidemic his first and highest priority. And on his official blog, he has cited data unequivocally establishing prescription opioids as the main cause of opioid addiction. These medications are also gateway drugs: Some 75 percent of heroin users in treatment began their addiction with prescription opioids.
As I See Ithas got itself a new editor, although the really interesting item on Frank O’Donnell’s to-do list is boosting sales of the ‘i’ in Scotland. Commenting on the appointment, Ashley Highfield, CEO of owner Johnston Press, may have spoken in the usual reverential terms about the 200-year-old Scottish title, but he knows it’s the upstart ‘i’, which it bought last year, that has been propping up the ailing group.
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".
