More than a thousand linemen from around the world were competing for top honors at the International Lineman’s Rodeo & Expo in Bonner Springs, Kansas, in mid-October. But only a select few had curious strips of tape on their work pants. “We wear tape on our legs, but you see the tape is taped backwards,” says lineman David Carlton, a 17-year veteran of Jackson Electric Membership Corporation (EMC), pointing to the bottom of a pair of heavy-duty jeans.
Ask a 21-year-old how much life insurance he has and you’ll likely draw a blank. His sense of caution won’t yet have been awakened. You could say the same of John F. Kennedy Jr. on his last flight 19 years ago. He thought he would have clear skies and was wrong. He lost his bearings and crashed his plane. Everyone aboard was killed. Global warming seems so invisible, so distant. How is anyone to get their bearings? Why not just ignore it? Figuring it out may not be easy, but it’s not impossible.
Colin Kapernick’s Mom destroyed Donald Trump on twitter, in a fiery response to his recent comments regarding NFL players who choose not to stand during the national anthem before sporting events. While attending a campaign rally, on Friday, in Huntsville, Alabama, Trump slammed all the NFL athletes who chose to take a knee during the singing of the national anthem before the start of each game, describing the players that do so as “son of a b***hes.
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".
