The man who insists upon seeing with perfect clearness before he decides, never decides. Politicians know they’re in trouble when even their attempts at frankness draw little more than shrugs. Unfortunately for Kevin Faulconer, San Diego’s mayor of molasses motion, his lofty, jaunty words now sound as if they were uttered in a vacuum. Meanwhile, life on the devolving streets continues.
Speeches that are measured by the hour will die with the hour. Congrats, fellow survivors! We’ve shed the weathered epidermis of 2017 and emerged baby fresh in a New Year of uncharted recreational-weed usage. Consider it a reward for enduring the last 12 months! Here in blue-sky San Diego, the New Year traditionally comes wrapped in the gauzy film of over-expectant hype topped with a dash of political gridlock.
To perceive Christmas through its wrapping becomes more difficult with every year. Yes, it’s that time of year, so get in good cheer, down a craft beer and belt out these twisted tunes to cast 2017 into the dustbin of history…Kicked right in the bumA chairman not to beOh and one other thingGomez is sure to bringIt’s the same old songWhile we just prolongIn wealth’s shadow let’s put up some tents, manAnd pretend we have this problem solvedFolks say: Mayor, what else? He says: “No plan.
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".
