For over a week, Iran has been rocked by demonstrations that started as expressions of frustration about crushing poverty and widespread unemployment but quickly morphed into calls for the ouster of the repressive ruling regime. The unrest came as something of a surprise, even though thousands of smaller-scale protests, with more limited demands, had been observed over the previous year alone. What did not come as a surprise was the theocratic regime’s brutal response.
The front page shows Trump, Sen. Hatch and the Mormon church leaders all grinning as Trump sells Utah lands to Hatch and his mining pals. The next story shows national news of Trump in the Mormon church’s grocery store. Everyone gets what they want by bowing to the king. Hatch gets his land for Christmas. Trump gets to check another Obama box. The Mormons get a little national face time, their favorite thing. Who gets screwed in the end? All of us.
In just a few years, a nationwide crisis has quickly evolved from a once-ignored health issue into one of the largest epidemics we have ever faced. For the first time in our history, more Americans are dying from drug overdoses than from car accidents and gun violence, fueled by addictive and deadly opioids. Estimates project opioids could kill more than half a million Americans over the next decade without decisive action.
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".
