U.S. SOCCER NEEDS A NEW HERO Bill Clinton was in the White House and Yugoslavia was still a country - they were the U.S. team's opponent - the last time the Americans played a World Cup game without Landon Donovan. Sixteen years and 156 appearances later, Donovan will be back watching from home as the United States begins its 2014 campaign against Ghana tonight (6 p.m. ET on ESPN) in Natal, Brazil. In his absence, the U.S. team will be looking for a hero.
If the bill passes, the argument goes, states would be freed up to assume greater control of their health care systems, effectively sidelining an inflexible and intrusive federal bureaucracy. The legislation from Sens. Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham would give states more leeway on the subject of pre-existing conditions, something Vice President Mike Pence praised on Thursday. He was asked if he could guarantee that state governors would still require those protections.
"We do think that Democrats made this a little easier for them," said Angel Padilla, policy director for The Indivisible Project. "The moment when we changed gears is when they made that deal." "I remember the first thing we said here was, 'Oh my god, they're bringing back health care.' If not for that deal, right now what we would be talking about would be the debt ceiling and the (continuing resolution to fund the government).
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".
