They secured freedom and liberty for a new nation, stormed the beaches of Normandy, Omaha and Utah, fought in the jungles of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, the frozen tundra of Korea, and the sun scorched sands of Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan. They’ve stood watch on the Korean Border, flown rescue missions into hostile countries and defended freedom around the world. They’ve answered the call of hundreds of humanitarian missions, natural disasters and won the cold war.
For weeks I have wrestled with writing about the current kneeling debacle, during our nation’s national anthem by members of the National Football League. I feel so strongly about this issue that it is not in me to be quiet anymore. I am not downplaying anyone’s right to protest about the issues and causes they feel strongly about.
Planning has been underway for several months for this year’s North Bay Stand Down, to provide services and resources to homeless veterans. The three day event begins on Tuesday, Oct. 17 thru Thursday, Oct. 19 at the Dixon Fairgrounds in Dixon. As noted on their website (www.nbstanddown.org), since 2002 through 2016, the stand down provided services to 2,710 veterans, and hot meals, showers and sleeping bags to 304 family members.
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".
