Disagreements over the terms of a new Federal Aviation Administration bill are partly to blame for the need for yet another short-term FAA authorization measure, which Congress is expected to pass this week. House and Senate lawmakers will take up a bill authorizing the FAA for six months. The legislation is considered a patch, and it will likely exclude much-needed reforms to improve airline safety and boost consumer protections.
Sen. Ted Cruz is seeking changes to the Senate GOP healthcare reform bill that would give states more authority to waive the healthcare law's mandates, senior aides said Monday. Cruz, R-Texas, does not yet support the bill from Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Bill Cassidy, R-La. The legislation would convert Obamacare funding into block grants and give states the power to determine whether to continue imposing the law.
The House voted unanimously Monday to reauthorize a 2004 North Korea human rights law, adding to the measure new provisions aimed at spreading uncensored information throughout the country. "This bill does not merely re-authorize activities under the activities under the North Korean Human Rights Act," House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce, R-Calif., said Monday. "It enacts important updates of freedom of information to reflect technological advances beyond radio broadcasting."
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".
