It’s time we stopped letting car owners talk about murderous drivers the same way that gun owners talk about murderers with weapons. Follow the logic: Seconds after some gun nut kills innocent people with an AR-15, gun rights advocates unleash their coordinated strategy: Guns, they say, are a birthright, but activists want to take them away — and besides, there’s no way to prevent crazy people with guns from killing innocents if they’re hell bent on doing it.
THE kid I was talking to got hit with a bottle of orange soda. He was a Met fan, so at least the color of the beverage was appropriate. But the violence was not. “I came here to show some love and to just say, ‘Let’s Go, Mets! '” said 16-year-old AgronKalicovic, the target of the hurled bottle. “I didn’t come here to be obnoxious – this is their parade – but just to say, ‘I’m a Met fan and I’m proud of my team.
Here's a Black Panther spoiler that won't spoil anything: Every American commuter who sees the movie is going to wish he or she was living in Wakanda. Wakanda, of course, is the titular hero's utopian homeland in Marvel's latest—and (not stretching here) greatest—superhero film. Ticketbuyers and critics are loving the movie's action and political message, but the the film offers urbanites an even more compelling subtext: Our cities are better without cars.
Final note from defensive driving course. It consisted of 62 pages of information about safe driving. Only one half of one page was about drivers sharing the road with cyclists. That’s 1/124 of the course.
So I’m taking a defensive driving course to save 10% on my insurance and I just learned I can have TWO DRINKS in an hour and not be DUI. To be fair, if I have two drinks in an hour, I’m so drunk I tell old stories about Prospect Park goose massacres. Just as @PPVSRB or @vdimicelihttps://t.co/JsGvGrfAmd
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".
