Listen to the full show here. "They Don't Trust Us And We Don't Trust Them": Discrimination Of Native AmericansHalf of Native Americans living on Indian reservations say they or a family member feel they’ve been treated unfairly by the courts. That’s according to a new poll by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard T-H Chan School of Public Health. It’s a lack of justice that Wind River Reservation residents say they live with every day.
Judge Merrick Garland signaled the Obama administration’s strategy to score as many political points as possible in the face of Republican opposition to his nomination to the Supreme Court during a short speech in the Rose Garden. The strategy can be summed up in three words: humanize, humanize, humanize. Polls show that between 55 and 70 percent of Americans want the Senate to hold hearings on a potential Supreme Court nominee. But that’s just in the abstract.
Fair. Except I don't think he advocated against dick pics, but your broader point is taken to heart (wholeheartedly and something I've railed against for years. It's not hypocritical if you legislate your beliefs. Problem is when you don't) https://t.co/zdE50uXevW
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".
