Which of these Shakespearean characters is not female: Hermia, Perdita, Regan, or Cymbeline? I had to think about that one. All the names have a female sound to them, and I knew only that Perdita is the young woman of royal heritage who is raised by a shepherd in “The Winter’s Tale;” and that Regan is one of King Lear’s daughters. Like the contestant on the quiz show, I had not read Cymbeline. Hernia, I finally connected with “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Response: Forget guilt; live your lives, and try to do some good. What is this obsession with dragging the chains from the past and wearing them around your neck? Be thankful for all the wonderful things that have happened in your lifetime, and for all the progress that we have made. Response: The people of England, France, and Poland do not think alike, nor do they act alike. They come from different cultures, and they need their own countries, well defined by borders and full autonomy.
We must resolve in the coming year to make education a number one priority for our nation. Neither in the perennial prattle of politicians nor in the mindless musings of the media does one hear much on this important topic. This has to change. Propaganda is the easiest thing to swallow if you are disadvantaged with a poor education.
@SharylAttkisson why is it that the Democrat Party wants to drag America, its history, its culture, into a state of diminution, even at the cost of self-interest. I have a very hard time understanding this. Perhaps, you can shed some light.
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".
