David Duke said of the events in Charlottesville, Virginia that it was a turning point for America. “We are determined to take our country back.” He declared. “We will fulﬁll the promises of Donald Trump. That is why we voted for Donald Trump.” The President said nothing to the White Nationalist terrorists, Ku Klux Klansman (aka Ku Klux Klowns) who came to the rally carrying guns and wearing hatred and bigotry shirts and caps Charlottesville has a Black city manager and a Black vice mayor.
The play, Shout Sister Shout, at the Pasadena Playhouse is a play to see if you like entertainment. However, it seems to miss the point of Rosetta Tharpe’s life. I was raised as a child in the Church of God In Christ (COGIC) where Rosetta Tharpe’s mother was an Evangelist and Rosetta was a powerful inﬂuence on the life of the Black Pentecostal church.
There is something spiritually uplifting about visiting someone whose life has taken a turn for the worse. Having a meal, sharing a book, or having an experience with a mutual friend or an acquaintance will keep the visit alive and off of the ailment or trauma that the person is going through. My wife and I recently took two road trips to visit out of town relatives who are going through something unpleasant. One is young. The other is closer to my age.
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".
