The US is experiencing a growth in the demand for organic milk and a drop in sales for conventional. In the $40 billion milk industry, organic milk makes up about five percent of milk sales, which is more than double the share from just ten years ago. The higher price premium for organic milk has enticed more dairies to go organic. But not every organic dairy farm is operated the same way. Organic milk operations range from small dairy operations to those that resemble factory farms.
Recently, I have had reason to revisit a journal article I published in 1996. The essay, titled “The Fatal Gap” argued that the Palestinian Liberation Organisation, then having just won leadership of the first ever autonomous Palestinian Council, was not a legitimate leader of the vibrant civil sector it purported to represent.
According to a recent Mainstreet Research poll that surveyed respondents from April 1st to 3rd, 36 per cent of B.C.’s decided and leaning voters support NDP. Those numbers indicate the same level of support that polls showed near the end of March, but is down two points from where the NDP registered in mid-March. The Liberals follow at 33 per cent, down one percentage point, while the Greens are holding on to their gains at 19 per cent.
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".
