Court: A Civil Union in Vermont Is the Same as a Marriage in MassachusettsA civil union in Vermont is no less than a marriage in Massachusetts, according to a ruling by Massachusetts' highest court. The determination came today as part of divorce case with a strange twist. Todd J. Elia-Warnken entered into a civil union in 2003 in Vermont and never dissolved it, even when later getting married to Richard Elia in Massachusetts in 2005.
Steve Bannon Couldn't Hide His Anger From The TV CamerasThe Trump adviser who is mocked by Saturday Night Live as a masked grim reaper had never done a TV interview. Until Sunday night, the top editor of Breitbart and chief Trump strategist had never given a television interview. “Boy you got me worked up,” Bannon told interviewer Charlie Rose, trying to lighten the mood, even as his blood seemed to pulsate along his neck.
Jerry Falwell Can't Say If There Were 'Very Fine People' in CharlottesvilleThe president of Liberty University was sent out to defend President Trump but ended up defending himself. The evangelical advisory council remains in tact, but even Jerry Falwell Jr. has trouble defending Donald Trump. ABC’s This Week prefaced its interview with the Liberty University president on Sunday by noting that the White House had picked Falwell when asked for a surrogate to interview about Charlottesville.
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".
