Good ol’ Microsoft Paint. The standard Microsoft Windows app was most likely the first graphics tool you ever used, but outside of creating a specific style of memes, you’ve probably graduated to more advanced programs like Photoshop or Illustrator. Pat Hines, however, is a Boston artist who could never quite get the hang of Photoshop, so he spent over a decade perfecting his skill in Microsoft Paint to create his first e-book.
Donald Trump is not the only newly-minted president causing waves. South Korean president Moon Jae-in was sworn in three days ago (May 10) and is already in motion to distance himself from his disgraced predecessor. The former human-rights lawyer has announced plans to eschew the luxurious perk of living in the mountainside presidential palace, nominated a prime minister from a rural left wing province, and pledged to unite the country—60 percent of South Koreans did not vote for him.
Trump's inauguration features no poetry. We fixed that. In the fourth episode of A Political and Literary Podcast , published on the ocassion of Trump's inauguration to the office of president, six Americans poets, Stephen Burt, Lynn Melnick, Monica Youn, Dorothea Lasky, Peter Gizzi, and Khadijah Queen read poems that register protest and mark a moment of political rupture.
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".
