There’s an infrastructure crisis in Baton Rouge that needs to be fixed. With particularly poor walking paths and nearly no bike lanes on the major streets, a simple walk around the neighborhood shows how much help the city really needs.The city’s bike paths may have already reached a panic point. In 2015, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention released a study ranking Louisiana third highest in cyclist mortality rates from 1975 to 2012, with one-third of people dying in accidents.
Hurricanes have been making headlines over the past few weeks, with Hurricane Harvey hitting Texas and now Hurricane Irma hitting Florida. As all of these disasters make landfall in America and the Caribbean islands, Red Cross is bound to get a load of work. However, Red Cross is not reliable and should not be who people donate to for disaster recovery. Red Cross began in 1881 and, according to its website, responds to nearly 64,000 disasters a year.
Ötzi the Iceman was tattooed. Mummies were tattooed. Theodore Roosevelt was tattooed. The stigma against tattooing seems stupid when looking at all the people who have been tattooed. Winston Churchill had an anchor, Andrew Jackson had a tomahawk, Thomas Edison had a geometric pattern and even “Mr. Conservative” Barry Goldwater had a crescent moon and four dots.Tattoos are a form of bodily and artistic expression, but are sometimes considered negative and even repulsive.
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".
