The sastrugi was scoured into polished, corrugated ice, making it a bit tricky skittering across the 12,000-foot ridge on my old-school tele skis. My son, Tait, waited patiently at the rocky knob marking the summit, sizing me up as I skied toward him. His studied appraisal revealed his need to judge the amount of liability I represented. "This is commitment," he said, gesturing toward an expanse of alpine wilderness at the headwaters of one of the most remote drainages we have ever skied.
An entitlement is a "right to have something." Most conservatives are against entitlements, claiming they enable dependence on government handouts, which is counterproductive to individual initiative. But conservatives are denying the biggest entitlement of all, an entitlement that dwarfs the funding of Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, unemployment and welfare programs.
When a 31-year-old Japanese woman named Miwa Sado, an aspiring newscaster, died of heart failure in October, her death brought to question the strident Japanese work ethic. Sado's work-life imbalance is a common ailment in Japan. "By 2015 more than 2,000 suicides and 96 deaths by brain and heart illnesses were linked to it," Time magazine reported, revealing that cultural norms compel many Japanese to martyr themselves to their work.
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".
