Last year, just as President Donald Trump was inaugurated in Washington, D.C., more than a million women and their allies stepped out as part of the Women’s March on Washington. Here in Phoenix, its sister march drew as many as 25,000 to the Capitol in downtown Phoenix. They were there to draw attention to the rights of marginalized groups, including women. But, they were also clearly there to speak out against President Trump’s election.
As we heard earlier this week, Mormons around the world welcomed a new president: 93-year-old Russell M. Nelson. Nelson is the new leader of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints following the death of its previous president earlier this month. Over the last few years, there have been a number issues the church has been pressured to address, including its stance on openly LGBTQ members, and whether or not women can hold “the priesthood” and positions of leadership.
The Departments of Homeland Security and Justice released a new report this week called Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States. It was required as part of the executive order known as President Trump’s travel ban, and it says that about three-quarters of those convicted of international terrorism-related offenses since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11 were foreign-born. But Alex Nowrasteh takes issue with this.
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".
