Television is overly populated with ads for various pharmaceutical products and I'm SICK of it. (Is there a drug for that?) Viewers cannot watch more than 15 minutes of television without medicine being peddled about a pernicious or deadly condition with a pharmaceutical solution. "FOR PEOPLE WITH HEART FAILURE TOMORROW IS NOT A GIVEN" voices a macabre announcer over a sad and somber rendition of "Tomorrow" from the musical "Annie!"
Here is what's on the President's agenda today:Harvey continues to wreak havoc in Texas. The Houston Chronicle reports that the rain continues to fall at a rate of 1-2 inches an hour. Louisiana is next. New Orleans officials ordered cities and schools closed. "Based on the weather, and out of an abundance of caution, I am recommending that everybody stay home tomorrow," Mayor Mitch Landrieu said Monday afternoon. The city could get 4-6 inches of rain.
Here is what's on the President's agenda today:If you donate to help the victims of Harvey, make sure you are giving to a reputable outfit. I suggest giving to local or state-based charities. Don't forget the help the animals and pet victims too! Hurricane Harvey is decimating Texas. The coast was devastated and now Houston is drowning with yet more rainfall to come. Dallas is preparing the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center to take in evacuees.
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".
