WASHINGTON – The race is on in Congress to extend federal health care funding for nine million children before states run out of money for the program over the next few months. Democrats say the effort could eventually be delayed by partisan politics.A Senate committee Wednesday overwhelmingly approved a bipartisan funding measure for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), in contrast with a House committee version expected to be endorsed on a majority Republican-only vote.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Sen. David Perdue, a Republican from Georgia, wants to let fewer poorly-educated immigrants into the U.S. to compete for jobs with Americans.“If you keep bringing uneducated unskilled workers in, who do they compete with?” Perdue said on a conservative radio show recently. “The low-end, low-skilled worker.”Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Lankford also wants to tighten up on immigration. He’d let illegal immigrants brought to the country as children become citizens.
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans say they want states to have more power to decide how to lower health insurance premiums.Yet some states are running into problems getting the federal government to let them do what they want by approving waivers to provisions of “Obamacare.”Angry Oklahoma officials say residents there missed a chance to see their premiums drop by about a third because the federal government was too slow to act.
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".
