A recent column in the Washington Post, written by two professors and a graduate student from the University of Washington in Seattle, gets so very, very much wrong, bemoaning the lack of nonprofit (as opposed to for-profit) regulation and using the Oxfam scandal as a jumping-off point. The authors posit that nonprofits, even ones as large as Oxfam, exist in a sphere that carries with it a presumption of virtue, and that this protects them from adequate external regulation.
A new report from the First Nations Development Institute (FNDI), financed by the Fund for Shared Insight, examines community foundation giving to American Indian groups in 10 selected states. According to the report, American Indian-led groups received only 0.15 percent of total grants, even though most states analyzed had above-average concentrations of American Indian residents. Astonishingly, that percentage trails already-modest national numbers.
As NPQ has noted, social determinants of health is a concept that points out that true health has less to do with doctor’s visits, medicine, and health insurance than it does with factors outside the healthcare system, such as poverty, environmental hazards, lack of access to healthy food, and a built environment that makes walking and exercise difficult.
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".
