Arizona’s two U.S. senators appear to be on board with a bipartisan effort on health-care reform. Sen. John McCain says he is pleased the Senate has returned to normal order with two-party negotiations between Democrat Patty Murray and Republican Lamar Alexander. After famously voting down a GOP repeal and replace proposal this summer, McCain says he’ll take a close look at their tentative agreement. “I’m concerned about it.
John McCain and Donald Trump may not agree on much, but the U.S. senator is on board with the president’s strategy in Iran. In a statement released following Trump’s announcement on Friday that he would not recertify the Iran nuclear deal, McCain called it a quote “welcomed long overdue change.”McCain, who did not support the deal at the time it was made by the Obama administration in 2015, agreed the deal was not in the nation’s best interests.
A federal corruption probe continues to widen into the actions of college basketball coaches, including one at the University of Arizona. The NCAA is responding to the scandal by starting a special commission, led by a former secretary of State. In the wake of bribery allegations against four men’s assistant college basketball coaches, NCAA President Mark Emmert says it needs to quote “make substantive changes” and that coaches that violate trust should be kicked out of the game.
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".
