Politicians in the Philippines achieved something that remains hard to believe even in places like the United States. Every single representative of the country's lower chamber voted in favor of a Philippines-wide LGBTQ anti-discrimination law, making the country one step closer to protecting its citizens from discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. The vote came in at 198-0 with no abstentions. It's hard to believe the House of Representatives could achieve the same thing.
Amid the anger surrounding the Graham-Cassidy repeal bill, there is a debate about whether or not pre-existing conditions are covered in the latest version of the Obamacare repeal. On Twitter on Wednesday night, President Trump praised the bill and its co-sponsor, Sen. Bill Cassidy, who in turn is lashing out at late night TV host Jimmy Kimmel for talking about — you guessed it — pre-existing conditions coverage in the Graham-Cassidy bill.
Teams of federal, state and local officials, together with the military, are all racing the clock to free people from the rubble in Mexico City, following the 7.1-magnitude earthquake that shook the Mexican capital on Tuesday. Things are intense, at least 216 people have been killed, but far more have been rescued. Among the Mexico earthquake rescue volunteers is a dog named Frida, a Labrador that is trained to seek out survivors in the rubble.
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".
