I feel dull saying it but I’m OK with Ontario’s announced approach to legalizing pot. They’re going to control it through stand-alone sales outlets run by the provincial liquor control board. My own main concern is the danger of uncontrolled strains. Those of us who go way back with marijuana may have missed the development of far more potent versions, some of which can especially damage the young, whose brains are still forming, and who are going to use.
She did nothing wrong. She refused to draw blood from an unconscious patient who hadn’t been arrested and there was no warrant. And refused politely. That video from Utah of a nurse being manhandled and arrested by a cop is like a seminar on the problem of police violence. Why? He says, “We’re done,” and goes berserk. In other words, he felt she was defying him. Not his request, him personally. But the key is: as a cop, he as a unique legal right to react with force.
Public statues are a weird source of controversy. They’re so static. Maybe in eras when there were few images — no internet or TV, no ads, statues could dominate. Or if you have a personal connection, like people in Charlottesville, who say they hate walking every day under the gaze of the master of Monticello, Thomas Jefferson, who owned slaves. But mostly they get noticed if someone wants to take down, say, Robert E. Lee.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
