Tuesday morning, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, or Mormon church, officially announced that 93-year-old Russell M. Nelson is the new church president. This comes just a few days after the death of Thomas M. Monson, the previous church president. “Four days ago we laid to rest a giant of a man, a prophet of God, President Thomas S. Monson. No words can do justice to the magnitude and magnificence of his life," Nelson said at his address Tuesday morning.
The Supreme Court has taken a case this term related to abortion, but it’s with a slightly different twist than we’ve seen before. It’s a case out of California - National Institute of Family and Life Advocates v. Becerra. At issue is the Reproductive FACT Act passed by California in 2015. It requires faith-based crisis pregnancy centers to post official notices about state family planning and pregnancy-related services. Opponents of the act say it violates freedom of speech.
California Gov. Jerry Brown hasn’t been shy about criticizing and challenging the Trump Administration. In fact, he’s been aggressive about it - on issues from climate change to immigration. Why has he chosen to do that? Is it beyond politics? And could it actually end up biting California? Robert Shrum is director of the Unruh Institute of Politics at the University of Southern California and a longtime national political strategist.
We'll kick off the 10 o'clock hour of the Show @kjzzphoenix with my conversation with @BobShrum about @governorjerryb taking on the Trump Administration. Plus, @markwbrodie asks the best questions about how U.S. immigration policies compare to other countries'.
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".
