I confess that I don’t know whether or not Larry Krasner will be a good district attorney. Hey, I thought Seth Williams would work out fine. I also thought trading Rick Wise for Steve Carlton was a monumental mistake. What I do know is that the near-hysterical reaction to Krasner’s removal of 31 people from the DA’s office is over-the-top. I tried to find out whether getting rid of 31 of your staff is unusual for an incoming DA. Couldn’t get the answer.
2018 is hardly more than a week old, and I’m scared. Panicked might be a better word. Did you know that scientists are predicting chocolate is going extinct by 2050? It’s terrible that polar bears are dying off or that air pollution might become so bad that we might have to wear a mask when going to the Acme. But chocolate going extinct! Admittedly, I’ll be around 110 years old by the time it happens, but I planned on gumming my Trader Joe’s 85 percent cocoa bars by mid-century if I had to.
Stephen Hawking is a famous physicist who is known for, among other things, his book “A Brief History in Time.” I have not completely read and digested Mr. Hawking’s book (I’m still trying to find the CliffsNotes version). But I understand that in his book, Hawking theorizes about black holes and the big bang. As a Philadelphia sports fan, I’m very interested in learning more about the location of black holes because the Phillies, Flyers, and Sixers keep falling into them.
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".
