It’s Thanksgiving, which means that you have better things to do than worry about seemingly arcane rules repealed by the FCC, and that’s exactly why the net neutrality repeal was announced this week. Net neutrality is a phrase that seems designed to put people to sleep, but the premise is very simple: right now, the internet runs at roughly the same speed regardless of which website you go to.
I have had the same freaking year the last three years. Not that it’s anything to complain about, since breaking even is almost a win when it comes to betting on sports, but I’m getting annoyed at proving myself wrong on being a “college football guru” like I fancied myself when I began betting on this and publishing my picks. I keep crushing my NFL bets (I’m 39–20–1 since Week 4), but I can’t get out of my own way in college (32–39–1 during that same period).
Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but the Republican Party is trying to pass a wildly unpopular bill that strips health care from the poor and gives the rich a massive tax cut. This time, they’re packaging it as “tax reform.” The House Republicans got the first crack at it, and they literally took money from orphans and gave it to billionaires.
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".
