Unbelievable! Jim Zeigler, the State Auditor of Alabama came to the defense of U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore by citing the biblical story of Mary and Joseph as an example of an older man having sex with a young girl. This is wrong on so many levels it is hard to imagine where to start. Therefore, let’s start with theology and the Bible. Central to the biblical story and to the Christian faith is the claim of the Virgin Birth or the Immaculate Conception.
I find the fuss about athletes kneeling during the national anthem to be completely inconsistent with what happens on the field and in the stands once the game begins. I understand why some players choose to kneel while the national anthem is being sung, even though the practice of singing while the players are on the field only began in 2009. I can also understand why some fans may view the act of not standing during the national anthem as unpatriotic.
On September 15, 2001 my wife and I were on the first flight from Boston, MA to Cleveland, OH. The Boston Logan Airport had been closed and all air travel across the United Sates had been halted since the terrorist attacks that occurred just four days earlier. I had picked up a copy of the Boston newspaper to read during the flight. I will never forget the lead editorial for that day's edition.
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".
