Donald Trump's inability to think through the possible ramifications of his actions couldn't be better illustrated than by his proposal to arm teachers.It is possibly the most dangerous proposal he has made to date.Teachers themselves have expressed emphatic opposition, and for Trump to stick to his guns on this, in the face of such reasonable opposition, is idiotic. Let's examine this scenario: Picture a gun locked in a desk.
Thomas L. Friedman's fascinating book, "The World Is Flat," concludes with a discussion of the need to upgrade our educational system to deal with how the internet and our new interconnectedness affect the daily lives of children, parents and other adults.His principal point is that everything we put on the internet affects our personal reputations, for good or bad. He points out the number of people he knew who were denied their dream jobs because of their platform on the internet.
When I read that Pullman recycling was having trouble finding a market for plastic and paper recycling recently because the Chinese market is becoming glutted (Page One, Jan. 27), I decided it is time to dust off a previous challenge I made to engineers and engineering students.The April 3 issue of The Christian Science Monitor Weekly, in their "people who make a difference" feature, reported on a woman from India, Medha Tadpatrikar, who, with associates, developed a mechanism to turn all...
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".
