They’ve grown up in their beloved United States, investing their sweat and tears in this land like so many of the rest of us. It chills them down deep that some in this country are cold on them and would cast them out.“A lot of stuff has happened we didn’t expect to happen,” Ruben, a 30-year-old local man, told me Wednesday. “But we’re your friends and neighbors, your service providers. We’re not a foreign entity trying to take stuff away from you. We’re not here to hurt anybody.
The Journal published this column of mine on the month after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Today, I’m still thinking of the New York victims, as well as those killed at the Pentagon and in the Pennsylvania plane crash, and their survivors, both in our area and across America.For most of my life, I had had the image that too many small-town Southerners have of New Yorkers — I had tended to think of them as self-absorbed city slickers with whom I had little in common.
On the eve of another Sept. 11 anniversary, maybe it’s worth thinking about ways we can reach children so they don’t grow up to be haters who take their anger out on the world.We’re obviously a long way from the Middle East. We’re not the terrorist-breeding ground that region is. We do face a growing threat from domestic terrorists, as last month’s slaying of a counter-protester at the Klan/Nazi rally in Charlottesville underscored.
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".
