I got to thinking about what Gov. Matt Bevin said on Wednesday about all the “selfish” teachers in Kentucky public schools. You know the ones he’s talking about. The ones who are so self-centered that they don’t want to accept cuts to the pension benefits that were promised to them years ago. So I decided to go out and find some of the horrible people who are teaching this state’s children. Quite frankly I was appalled at what I found. Take Angela Green for instance.
Not necessarily in that order. Back in the day, his dingy bar, tucked into the east side, kind of in between Smoketown and the Highlands, was the type of place where high muckety mucks could go and have a beer or a bowl of chili with the ordinary guys. Jim's Tavern was unassuming and had an earthy feel, kind of like "Big Jim" himself. It fit into the neighborhood. He fit into the neighborhood.
No matter how old I get, I'll never understand adults. They're supposed to be the thoughtful, reasonable ones. The ones who step in and stop kids from doing something colossally stupid. It didn't quite work that way on Wednesday when, at some schools across Kentucky and the country, the adults were being anything but smart when they tried to keep students who are fed up with gun violence from being heard.
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".
