On Oct. 19, 1983, the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday bill passed the U.S. Senate by a vote of 78-22. On Nov. 3, 1983, President Reagan signed the bill establishing the 3rd Monday of every January as the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Holiday, beginning in 1986. Even with this vaunted status as one of only 10 federal holidays, MLK Day is not treated with the proper respect that it deserves. The UPS still comes to the door with packages. People clock in at their jobs.
Commentary: Over the past year I have written dozens of articles, blogs, op-eds, and even poems directed at Donald J. Trump. I am exhausted. I really do not have anything else to say about the man. I am actually quite bored with him. But I cannot put my pen down when he keeps doing things that are so monumentally stupid, fundamentally unjust, and simply bad for the country. To remain silent because he annoys and bores me is no reason to abandon resisting his agenda with all of my creative energy.
"We all know that UFOs are real. All we need to ask is where do they come from." — Astronaut Edgar D. Mitchell, after his Apollo 14 Moon flight in 1971For centuries, the prospect of UFOs has raised countless questions. Are their occupants hostile or friendly? Do they have occupants at all? Is there a way to communicate with them? What source of power do they use to travel? Do aliens believe in God?
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".
