In a move that may come as a surprise to their opposition, the National Rifle Association has expressed support for a Bump Stock Ban. In a joint statement from the NRA and its lobbying arm it commented the following:This came after the tragic mass shooting in Las Vegas where hundreds were shot within a matter of minutes in part due to the use of a device known as a Bump Fire Stock. Which aided in producing a rate of rapid-fire similar to that of a machine gun.
Congressman Tim Murphy once loudly advocated the Pro-Life cause at the Right to Life Convention in Pittsburgh in 2010. Katie Blackley of WESA reported him proclaiming the following:Now well into his eighth term in Congress representing the Republican 18th District of Pennsylvania, an affair it seems has derailed his prospects for re-election. The Post Gazette first leaked a series of messages between Mr. Murphy who was 64 at the time and Ms. Edwards who was 32 years old.
Ever since I read Friedrich von Hayek’s Road to Serfdom this summer for my fellowship, I cannot stop stumbling upon references to his work throughout other political literature and indirectly in activism against collective theories. For the active, political junkie, ever since opening the cover, this work has served as a backbone to debating ideology and it will undoubtedly open the eyes of its next reader.
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".
