Here’s a fun story: The only reason I exist is because long long ago, a girl from Oregon and a boy from California met because she didn’t know how to pump her own gas. It’s true; my parents met when my mother, who had just moved to the Bay Area, pulled up to a gas station and sat in her car, waiting for an attendant to come out and help her. Fortunately, a pleasant and handsome young man was on shift at the service station and came to her rescue (and rib her a little for not knowing what to do).
Is your family ready to get woke? Last year, I made my holiday pilgrimages with my lips pursed. Ferguson was fresh and my heart was aching. I wanted to dispel the misinformation and confront the deeply-rooted privilege and yes, even racism, that I knew I’d find waiting for me. I wanted to, as W. Kamau Bell recommended recently, collect my people. I wanted to have hard conversations about social issues that really mattered.
Millennials, am I right? The extremely homogenous, not-at-all-diverse generation that’s launched a million trend pieces is so obsessed with our iPhones and our emojis and our Justins, both Bieber and Trudeau, that we haven’t even noticed our greedy begging has ruined the workplace. It’s as if we’re just ignoring all of the pieces calling us the worst! I mean, really. What do we even want?
📣The issue isn't whether or not the dude actually used the word "shithole" (literally who gives a single fuck) but instead, whether or not he fundamentally believes that majority Black and Brown nations are shitholes while majority white nations are not. 📣
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".
