Shortly before the newest U.S. News & World Report college rankings came out, I got a fresh glimpse of how ridiculous they can be - and of why panicked high school seniors and their status-conscious parents should not spend the next months obsessing over them.
There are predictions that Monday night's presidential debate will "shatter records," as one recent headline put it, drawing a Super Bowl-size audience of more than 100 million viewers. They will not be coming for a detailed back-and-forth on stop-and-frisk.
At the Monday night presidential debate, will Donald Trump rage and redden and lie and lash out like the Trump we're accustomed to - the real Trump, It's what the audience is tuning in for, Donald. You wouldn't want to disappoint us.
The rankings nourish the myth that the richest, most selective colleges have some corner on superior education; don't adequately recognize public institutions that prioritize access and affordability; and do insufficient justice to the particular virtues of individual campuses.

Later I spoke with a renowned mathematics professor, Manil Suri, who is also the openly gay author of an acclaimed sequence of novels set in India, where he was born, and who has contributed frequently to The Times.
Oz confirms as much: "At an office birthday party, I'll have a bite of something, and I won't feel good." Worse yet is the aftermath of a vacation during which he has not had as much control over his diet and exercise as usual.
Running for president isn't hard. It's brutal. The oddity isn't that one of the candidates would succumb to illness and be forced off the trail for a few days. The oddity is that all of the candidates don't drop like flies.
Before we delve any further into the coughs heard round the world and the swoon that changed history, some perspective: Running for president isn't hard. It's brutal. The oddity isn't that one of the candidates would succumb to illness and be forced off the trail for a few days.
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
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".
