TEXAS - A little known piece of the Senate's tax reform plan has some flying off the handlebars. If GOP Senators get their way, the plan would cut a tax benefit for bike commuters. Currently, bikers who commute via pedal power qualify for a $20-per-month tax deduction through their employer. But Senate Republicans could soon put the brakes on the program, which has been in effect since 2009.
AUSTIN, Texas — Vice President Mike Pence spoke Wednesday afternoon in Austin at the Republican Governor's Association. He delivered a speech that mainly focused on tax reform. The vice president reiterated he expects a tax reform bill to land on the president's desk before the end of the year, and said the momentum is on their side. The Republican-controlled Congress has struggled to pass any signature legislation since President Trump took office.
AUSTIN, Texas - It's 6:20 AM on a Monday in the Hong household, which means a flurry of lunch-packing and last-minute art projects. "Our mornings are pretty crazy," said Liz Hong. But the morning rush could soon be the least of this family's worries. "So we have CHIP for three of our kids," Hong said. The family relies on the state- and federally-subsidized Children's Health Insurance Program or CHIP for short. "We use it to get our doctor's appointments.
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".
