Recently, Luke Peterson wrote an op-ed here, asserting the United Utah Party had failed to live up to its promise.I consider Luke a friend and appreciate differences of opinion. Indeed, I was expecting the typical arguments against us.
In 2016, Colin Kaepernick said, "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” In so doing, he threw the entire country under the bus for the actions of a very small minority of the population. During the playing of the national anthem, he sat to display his disrespect for the flag and the country. He later exchanged sitting for kneeling in an attempt to show more respect to former and current U.S. military members.
By Scott Atran, Hoshang Waziri, and Richard DavisFollowing the expulsion of ISIS from Mosul in Iraq and with the imminent fall of the de facto ISIS capital of Raqqa in Syria, recent media reports suggest that ISIS fighters are defecting or surrendering by the hundreds and thousands. Last month, The Guardian reported that “hundreds of defectors” and “large numbers of militants and their families” in Syria were fleeing from the “divided and demoralized rump” of the so-called Islamic State.
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".
