The Kid’s favorite comedian is Louie C. K.Maybe not so much, now. She is, she said, very disappointed that someone who could come across as funny and insightful would be revealed as so disturbed. She was in the kitchen making dinner when a report of his contribution to the latest cultural catastrophe came over the evening news. I immediately changed the channel to an Ivy League football game I could not have cared less about.
Tulare Regional Medical Center (TRMC) its clinics and gym, Evolutions, are scheduled to close–temporarily, it is hoped–at midnight tonight, 28 October, and at the time of this writing the new board of directors has yet to have access to the financial information it requires to accomplish much of anything. The books are still in Healthcare Conglomerate Associates’ (HCCA) hands.
One theme of 2017, especially the latter part of the year, must surely be disaster. The hurricanes and fires recently wrought by Mother Nature have overshadowed any political catastrophe we live with daily. During our five years in Cabo San Lucas we endured many hurricanes, and, because these storms are large in area, a direct hit by the eye was not a requirement for calamity. Successive bands of heavy rain–and the high wind associated with them–played merry hell with, literally, everything.
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".
