WASHINGTON, DC (WMBF) – On Tuesday, local Rep. Tom Rice, along with 418 colleagues in the House of Representatives, overwhelmingly voted to approve H.R. 3364. It’s called the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act. It would place new sanctions on Iran, North Korea and Russia if the president signs it.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (WMBF) - Representative Tom Rice says he works hard to reach the people of South Carolina’s 7th District. He points to a report from The Hill that lists him as tied for 14th with Rep. Mark Sanford for the most town hall events since the start of 2015. The 48 events are the seventh-most for a sitting representative, a house of 435. That report was published in March after a series of town hall meetings across the country turned into shouting matches over the Affordable Care Act.
The number of professing Christians who rejectÂ the biblical sexual ethic (as it is traditionally understood) has been climbing steadily over the last few years. Many who once submitted to the Bibleâ€™s clear condemnation of homosexual behavior now propose that theologians have long been off base in their interpretation of the texts addressing this issue.
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".
