It’s not a loss, but a setback. That pretty much sums up the statement of UAW president Dennis Williams after a resounding defeat in the unionization vote of the Canton, MS Nissan Plant. Not a loss, Mr. Williams said, but the workers voted nearly two to one against unionizing the plant, the Tennessee Tribune reports. The official tally was 2,244 against to 1,307 for unionization. That is some setback, if I may say so. This was a tense and much-watched election.
We all know that I am a huge anti distracted driving proponent. It's just plain dumb to text and drive. Period. However, I think this new Washington state law, which went into effect this Sunday, goes too far. Under the new law, drivers can and will be fined for just holding their phone while driving. OK, I get that. You shouldn't need to hold your phone anymore as most cars and/or phones have voice activated features.
The UAW is certainly tenacious. But, I guess when you prey on others you have to be. According to the article, the UAW is attempting to force a vote to unionize workers at Nissan’s Canton, MS plant. Nissan’s other U.S. Plants are nonunion, and historically, the UAW has been unable to unionize foreign auto plants in the South, but that hasn’t stopped the UAW. I hope the workers at the Canton plant vote the union down.
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".
