WASHINGTON, June 21, 2017 – President Trump’s effort to increase economic growth has been somewhat thwarted by politics. He would like to solve the health care issue and reform the tax code, which is really what is needed to increase economic growth. Despite that, he has already issued some growth inducing executive orders. Some economists believe that Trump’s policies could increase growth to 4% per year. Many Americans are weary of forecasts by economists. And there is a good reason for that.
Once the minimum wage goes to $15, what would unskilled workers be paid? $18? $20? How many businesses will close because of it? WASHINGTON, June 19, 2017 — On their website, the Fight for $15 movement says they have helped more than 22 million minimum-wage workers win raises. That total includes 10 million minimum-wage workers who are on their way to $15 per hour, which is the goal of the organization.
WASHINGTON, June 13, 2017 ⏤ Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election. The Democratic Party failed to win a majority in either the House of Representatives or the Senate. The reason is that Democrats had a losing message. Instead of offering positive policies, Clinton and the Democrats campaigned on “not Trump.”Since November, they have not changed their message; instead, they’ve increased the message’s intensity. Trump is president.
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".
