Among the subjects most discussed in anticipation of the GOP's healthcare bill — alongside Medicaid expansion and funding for Planned Parenthood — there has always been the topic of pre-existing conditions. The big question was straightforward: Under a new Republican plan, would insurers be able to hike the costs of premiums for people who have serious illnesses? After the Thursday unveiling of the GOP's bill, called Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017, we have an answer: No.
A 52-year-old Donald Trump had been separated from his second wife, Marla Maples, for about year. Simultaneously, the real estate mogul was rumored to have been dating Celina Midelfart, a Norwegian business heiress in her mid-20s who had been renting an apartment in Trump Tower while studying at NYU. In September of that year, Trump attended a New York Fashion Week party at Manhattan's Kit Kat Club, near Times Square.
Every office has that one person who takes way too many snacks. In the CIA's case, though, it appears there were a bunch of those types of people. According to BuzzFeed News, which cited a recently released document, a number of CIA contractors were fired a few years ago for stealing thousands of dollars worth of snacks from vending machines over a period of several months. No, seriously. The thefts took place between fall 2012 and March 2013 and resulted in a loss of over $3,300 worth of snacks.
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".
