The last several days there has been a cicada singing right outside our front door. The first two days, Daniel was complaining about it because it was so loud, but today he was okay with the cicada. However, after only a few minutes of singing, the cicada stopped singing. Daniel: Hey! The cicada stopped singing. It must have gotten a girlfriend. After a few minutes, the cicada started singing again. Daniel: Aww! The female must have changed her mind!
I am wondering how many people would listen to a podcast were I to do one. I am thinking of titling it “A View From the Outside” because of my view that the autistic mind is sufficiently different from neurotypical minds as to be the closest to an “outside” view a neurotypical could get to a variety of topics.
A Proposal for Education Reform All teaching should be structured so that autistic children can learn the material. Because if an autistic child can learn it, a neurotypical child will be able to learn is using that method as well. That means anchoring language to images and repetition. But it does not work the other way around. What works for neurotypical children won’t necessarily work for autistic children. Coincidentally, both do best in a Montessori school.
@DanielSamanez Trust me, I stand for all sorts of things that would definitely not benefit me personally.
I suppose a show that does politics in a purely logical, egoless fashion would attract autistics, and likely run off everyone else. ;-)
@DanielSamanez I suppose I'm asking if knowing what my politics is would affect the reception of the (mostly) non-political views I present on my blog. As for being logical and authentic, you did get the memo that I'm autistic, right? ;-)
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".
