Concerned about the future of your health care? You’re not alone. With the arrival of the Senate's Better Care Reconciliation Act last week, critics have been quick to point out that the proposed legislation would hit older and poor people's wallets hardest—while generating a massive tax cut for the country's wealthiest. A major source of contention surrounding the Better Care Reconciliation Act is cuts to Medicaid estimated to be more than $800 billion by the year 2026.
In today’s multigenerational workforce, life tends to come at you faster than ever—and with that, diminished boundaries between you and your superiors. The way you communicate with your boss used to be a bit more polished and measured, but with the rise of social media and everyone following everyone, along with a constant stream of in-office instant message conversations and Slack chatter, it’s harder than ever to see where the lines are drawn. But that doesn’t mean every conversation is easy.
Picture this: You walk into your boss’s office, calmly lay out a case for why you deserve more money, and—poof! Your take home pay increases just like that. If only it was that easy. Asking for a raise can be one of the more anxiety-inducing parts of any job. Money conversations are never fun when it comes to one’s own personal worth, yet according to a February survey from the compensation firm PayScale, only 20% of employees feel that they are paid fairly.
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".
