Regulators are prepared to eliminate net neutrality. This is no esoteric concept but an action that will hurt the U.S. economy and its citizens. Christmas came early for giant companies such as AT&T, Comcast and Verizon, when Ajit Pai, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, indicated Tuesday that he would dismantle net neutrality.
The continued slowdown in growth for world trade spells trouble for state exporters. Through the third quarter, Washington’s merchandise exports totaled $55.7 billion, down almost 5 percent from the same period in 2016. The consequences of “America First” haven’t even kicked in — so blame the decline on a strong dollar, continued weakness in international trade and a 12 percent drop in airplane and aerospace parts exports from the state. The data are compiled by the research firm WISERtrade.
Economic nationalism is real, and while it will disappoint its backers, it presents a serious danger to Washington state. Much of the media coverage of President Donald Trump’s Asia trip focused on whether he would make an embarrassing gaffe — and he mostly avoided the worst fears. But the 12-dayjourney was nonetheless significant. Especially in his tough speech at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit, Trump signaled a decisive break with 70 years of American policy.
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".
