Those words were signed into law on June 23, 1972, by Richard Nixon, a Republican, to zero fanfare. There was no press conference and very little media coverage. Radio talk shows, those that existed, were not taking calls from listeners outraged over this bit of civil rights law.Title IX turned 45 years old last week and it is still going strong. This is worthy of a nationwide party, even if some crusty old men affiliated with college athletics programs don't think so.
The similarities between how Minnesota arrived at its state record northern pike and North Dakota arrived at its state record walleye are interesting. Enjoy.Originally printed in The Forum on Aug. 24, 2003The tale of North Dakotas state-record walleye is something that could not happen today.It is something straight out of 1959, which happens to be the year Blair Chapman Sr. of Minnewaukan was credited with catching a 15-pound, 12-ounce whopper in Wood Lake.
Oh, the good old days of demonizing anybody who thought perhaps the folks building the pipeline and the North Dakota government were complicit with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in rushing to get the DAPL completed before all the T's were crossed and I's were dotted.Of course, it was easy then because Kenyan-born Muslim Barack Obama was president and when he halted work on the pipeline to ask for further study of some key issues, spouting about the rule of law played into the narrative...
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".
