In his response to the white supremacist terror attack in Charlottesville, VA, President Trump attempted a note of patriotic unification:“We love our country, we love our God, we love our flag, we’re proud of our country, we’re proud of who we are.”In these divided times, such a statement is too simple–dangerously so. Many Americans would like to love their country but cannot, because they are subjected to suspicion and scrutiny from their government and fellow citizens.
Do you ever feel homesick? You’re not the only one. Going to a different place away from your family and loved ones, being put into a new environment and being told to survive is often very distressing. This is common for college students around the world. Often people feel alone in this situation, or they long for the comfort of their home with their parents. The homesickness felt by young people all over the world is a microcosm of what humanity as a whole feels spiritually.
Despite the overwhelming 75-25 odds in favor of Floyd Mayweather’s victory, local college freshman Brenden Brown decided to “make something of himself” and bet his entire college savings – which his parents had been saving since the day he was born – on Conor McGregor’s triumph. Around the seventh round, his friends report, Brenden immediately regretted his decision to bet $240,000 and urged others to “help a brother out and donate to his cause.”Reality hit soon after the fight concluded.
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".
