The 1986 tax law included no tax writeoff for research, 35 years to write off capital expenses in buildings (compared to 1 to 3 years in most industrialized nations) and a machinery writeoff of 10 years (compared to 1 year for the rest of world). This law penalized U.S. manufacturing. It also eliminated more than 20 million jobs paying $20 to $40 an hour. It penalized the working class, mostly minorities, with little effect on the rich.
For far too long across the American West, especially on the sweeping and magnificent ranges of Utah’s iconic landscape, there has been an ongoing struggle between those whose livelihoods depend on multiple uses of our public lands and the groups focused on advocating for limited use of those lands.
TO PARAPHRASE a famous 1970s disco tune: “Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel it?”We are now firmly in the month before Christmas and already I am beginning to loathe driving in to town. Slowly, almost imperceptibly, the traffic volumes are rising and car parks are starting to creak at the barriers. The normally stress-free drive into town to the shops has become a fight for parking spots that sees normally reasonable, rational people become ogres with the manners of a honey badger.
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".
