While running for president, one of Donald Trump’s key campaign promises was to end DACA “immediately.” On Sept. 5, after almost nine full months, “immediately” finally happened — sort of. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions made the announcement, which would be effective in six months. But the very next day, Trump reversed himself — or at least created mass confusion — by saying he might extend the effective date further, if Congress failed to act during those six months.
On Aug. 30, representatives from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach took public comments on their draft Clean Air Action Plan at Banning’s Landing. Unlike past versions, there was no broad mechanism for incorporating public stakeholder viewpoints into the plan. Dozens of local residents stepped forward to fill that gap. In the eyes of many, the CAAP’s first, and most obvious problem was simply how long it would take —18 years — to achieve its zero-emission goals.
As Kessler goes on to explain, the CRA question isn't the only one that's demonstrably false. But it is most transparently false. The concept of cognitive dissonance was dramatically illustrated by the case of a UFO who's prediction of world destruction failed, leading to a dramatic intensification of belief.
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".
