More than two decades ago, in 1996, California became the first U.S. state to legalize cannabis for medicinal purposes. Since then, a further 29 states have followed suit, with others going further and legalizing the drug for recreational use, too. However, marijuana still appears on the DEA’s list of scheduled drugs – in category 1, alongside heroin and LSD.
That’s right, I said it. Voting is important, and it is the fundamental quality that people should look for in a democracy like the one we have in this country. After many long-fought battles throughout our history, people over the age of eighteen now have the privilege to vote in our country’s elections, regardless of their gender, race or class. But even after this ridiculous hundreds-of-years battle, sometimes us younger folk take voting for granted.
It’s no secret that Greek Life can be a little well...cisgendered. In fact, overall, we have a general reputation of being overwhelmingly cisgendered and wrongly stereotyped as being gender normative. First of all, the whole “gender normative stereotype” thing isn’t true, and srat girls are some of the fiercest, classiest, most intelligent ladies you’ll find at your university! We’ll kick your ass, break your heart, and look great doing it the entire time.
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".
