I read where Hillary Clinton calling Donald Trump "Donald" was a calculated power move. Trump, apparently, highly values the brand equity in his last name so Clinton going informal was a sign of disrespect.
"He (Trump) was just a regular guy, just a working-class guy at heart like everyone else around here," said a prospective voter in a N.Y. Post article about Trump after Monday night's debate. I've read a number of barroom polls that favor Donald Trump's Monday night debate perform.
I read a lot of articles in the New York Times (NYT) and Washington Post (WaPo). At least try to. I have tried unsuccessfully to subscribe to the online editions of both. Their barrage of email promotions have wore me down and despite being a lifelong reader of my local newspaper, the Boston Globe, I decided to branch out.
No the headline isn't an ad for Facebook. It's my reaction to a Boston Globe column holding up the headline " I'm 36 and not on Facebook. You probably shouldn't be either. " You guessed it.

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
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".
