Yet, we know it’s not like that. There are good people in Iran, with educations, meaningful lives, loving families ...Back in the late ‘70s, I attended a small community college in southeast Nebraska. For whatever reason, it became a magnet for Iranian students. It was just as the shah’s reign was coming apart, as the revolution was happening, just before the hostage situation developed. We got along well ... they were good students and good citizens and interesting to talk to.
1. Oroville Dam and related water issues, including levees. spillway repairs, storage policy, emergency procedures, evacuation plans ... you name it, and someone has thought about it. Hands down, this was the main thing of the year. It got the most linage in the news, brought in the most comments online and letters to the editor. We were rattled by this thing. It’s not going away for awhile. 2. The Cascade Fire.
Since that time, businesses, groups and individuals have been working to restore the community. The Cascade Fire Fund dollars will be used to help people rebuild, repair and get back into their homes. Organizers John Nicoletti and Dave Armstrong, both associated with the local Habitat for Humanity chapter, are hoping a flood of contributions comes in time to be counted for the matching funds.
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".
