When I hear the term “America First,” I think of many different ways to interpret it. While the phrase helped our current POTUS get into office by gathering support from citizens who believe we should always put our country’s needs before anyone else’s, many others see it as a way of working toward staying at the forefront of innovation and the implementation of new technology – except when it begins to threaten our jobs.
Let’s face it – we are in the middle of a political crisis. No matter what the subject, our country is more divided than ever. On November 22, the day before Thanksgiving, the topic of net neutrality reared its ugly head once again. It came in the form of a draft of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission’s Restoring Internet Freedom proposal, which would repeal the Internet’s classification as a telecommunications service, thus getting rid of the 2015 ruling on net neutrality.
AI and the Future: Education, Healthcare, and Social ResourcesIn the past few years that we have made great strides in how we analyze and implement artificial intelligence, we have found ourselves thinking about the future and how we can be more productive and reliant on technology to help us with everyday tasks. There is a panel that assembles every five years to observe how far we’ve come with AI, as well as how to improve it going forward.
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".
