Jeff Ernst says he’s a threat to public safety. At least in the eyes of society — including politicians and pundits — he’s a threat.Ernst suffers from mental illness, anxiety to be specific. He had his first anxiety attack while dressing for a hockey game when he realized he forgot some of his equipment.
I suppose we’ve crossed the starting line of winter. Of course those late-October 70 degree temps in the upper Midwest were too good to last.Who are these people on the local news rushing to buy shovels and ice scrapers? Did they lose them since last year? And must we be reminded on how to drive every time snow is predicted? I’d much prefer to see the unlucky television reporter standing out in the blowing snow just say, “Yeah, it’s really cold and snowy out here. It’s not pleasant.
I made an off-hand joke a couple years ago that Pharrell Williams, known for his song “Happy,” should be happy because I don’t know where he lives. That song was played repeatedly on radio and commercials, and I said I’d be happy if I never heard it again.Back in 2003 when I got married, we told the DJ there were two rules for music. First, no Bob Seger.
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".
