I keep thinking about those words from the Psalm: “Joy comes in the morning.”Joy might seem far off right now.This is a different King Day, one preceded by months of racial unrest. It’s preceded by a year of dreams turned to nightmares, of the fatal white supremacist rally in Charlottesville and what’s often seemed like a slow surrendering of all that’s good about our land.
As President Trump continues his push to severely limit the number of refugees our land of liberty lets in, most recently by his action to deport Salvadoran refugees and through his bigoted insult against Africa and Haiti, here’s a story: My wife, Kathleen, might not be here, or alive period, if her maternal ancestors had not made it here.I thought about that at an October family wedding and at a holiday gathering. My wife’s clan is large and strong.
When he was 16, sporadically attending 9th grade classes in Charlotte, Javier C. Alexander fatally shot a 27-year-old man over drug sales, and, a few months later, fatally shot a fellow 16-year-old because he thought he was after him. That was in 1990. The next year, Alexander pleaded guilty to those murders and entered prison.
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".
