Before the current President ever set foot in the Oval Office, I signed onto the "Anybody Else in 2020" campaign. But I'm not ready to jump on the Oprah bandwagon. At least, not yet. Do I admire Oprah Winfrey? Of course, I do. How can you not? She's powerful, influential and climbed the summit on her own. In 2010, Life magazine named Oprah one of the 100 people who had changed the world. The list also included Jesus Christ, Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa. I'd call that some pretty weighty company.
Get ready. This could be the week the two words "Farm Show" just might appear more frequently than the words "Penn State." It's a tough row to hoe (Note the farm-like reference. ), but my money's on Farm Show popping up more. Some undoubtedly will talk about "Farm Show weather." They will tell you the Farm Show often brings cold and snow. To me, well, it's January. What did you expect? Despite the cold, you will hear an awful lot about milkshakes this week.
Suddenly, the traditional baby boy appears wearing a diaper, a top hat and a sash proclaiming 2018. But this is one special New Year's baby. He possesses genie powers and is promising you a chance to fashion the country of your dreams in 2018. That's right. You can change the U.S. to be however you want it. Think about what you would do with that power. And while you consider your changes, I'm going to share mine:First, we fire all the current politicians in Washington.
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".
