The first time I could legally vote was in 1984, when Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush were wrapping up their first term as president and vice president. They would face former vice president Walter Mondale and Geraldine Ferraro, a congresswoman from New York and the first woman ever nominated for the presidential ticket. Bill Clinton was governor of Arkansas. He was in his second term, back when the state's terms lasted only two years.
If Northwest Arkansas’ unemployment rate is so low the experts question whether there’s even statistical room for it to go lower, why does the region have such a big — and in many cases growing — population of people in poverty? It will not come as a shock that poverty exists in Northwest Arkansas, although the area’s branded promotional efforts help to reinforce the notion that the region is tantamount to the land flowing with milk and honey promised to Abraham in the Bible’s Old Testament.
For a day or two last week, even the occupants of the contentious hallways of Congress were focused on the quality of public discourse -- or its erosion -- in our nation. And all it took was one of them to get shot. I don't say that to make light of last week's injuries after a gunman opened fire during the Republicans' team practice for an annual charity baseball game that pits the GOP against the Democrats.
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".
