Jimmy Kimmel's not exactly Walter Cronkite, and losing the support of a late night comic on health care isn't quite the same as losing America's most trusted anchor on Vietnam.Still, U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy's last minute effort to unravel the Affordable Care Act before favorable procedural terms expire next week clearly fails the "Jimmy Kimmel test."
As Republicans in Congress make one last run at unraveling the Affordable Care Act, new government data points to yet another measure of the law's benefit: Significantly fewer people in Louisiana are going without health insurance now than in the past.Just 10.3 percent of Louisiana residents were uninsured in 2016, down from 11.9 percent in 2015 and 16.6 percent in 2013, according to U.S. Census data published by the Associated Press.
Less than one month out from primary day, this year's New Orleans municipal elections aren't exactly generating a lot of heat.One recent poll showed that three top candidates for mayor — City Councilwoman LaToya Cantrell and two former judges, Desiree Charbonnet and Michael Bagneris — are running neck and neck for the two runoff spots, with the remaining 15 candidates trailing far behind.
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".
