Don't touch women (or children or other men) unless it's absolutely clear that your relationship already includes touching. Don't make sexual comments to women unless it's absolutely clear that your relationship is sexual in nature. Surely you can figure out when to keep your pants on. Surely. What's happening in recent weeks, with the #metoo phenomenon following long-delayed disclosures of Harvey Weinstein's misconduct is finally a moment for women to assert themselves.
Rosa Contreras of Carbondale is a new small businesswoman living the American dream. I've been privy to Rosa's story because she works with my wife through English in Action, the Basalt-based nonprofit that pairs volunteers with immigrants who want to improve their English skills. Her determination and persistence are remarkable — a lot of people with more advantages would have given up in the face of the obstacles she's faced. Rosa immigrated to the United States from Guatemala in 2007.
The North Korean people don't know that in many other countries, their leader is considered a pudgy madman with bad hair. State-run media hails Kim Jong-un as a hero warding off the United States. To the North Korean people, Kim was an accomplished sailor by age 9, and music he has composed is celebrated all over the world (as is his birthday). What North Korean media say about their current supreme leader isn't as far-fetched as other things the people have been told.
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".
