WASHINGTON — Legislation to provide billions in federal aid to help Western states recover from wildfires and Gulf states and U.S. territories rebuild from hurricanes is stalled while the partisan fight over the fate of nearly 700,000 Dreamers rages on. That means it could be months before ranchers in California, citrus farmers in Florida and families without power in Puerto Rico get the help they've been desperately seeking.
WASHINGTON — NASA's program to replace the space shuttle, already years behind schedule due mainly to underfunding, may not be sending astronauts on American rockets until at least 2020 given key technical and safety issues that remain to be addressed, according to a government watchdog. The two aerospace companies NASA has hired — Boeing and SpaceX — to ferry astronauts to the International Space Station are projecting they'll be able to fly missions in 2019.
WASHINGTON — Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told a Senate committee Tuesday she did not hear President Trump utter the word "shithole" or a similar vulgarity to describe African and some Latin American countries during a meeting on immigration last week with senators. Trump has denied using the word.
.@SenateCommerce once again approves nomination of @RepJBridenstine for @NASA administrator on party line vote (14 Rs -13 Ds). Chief opponent @SenBillNelson sez he lacks votes for full Senate confirmation but supporters on panel say he's well qualified to lead agency.
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".
