For everyone watching the Senate's so far vain attempts to replace and repeal Obamacare that include a provision to defund Planned Parenthood, look no further than Texas on what kind of impact that would have on women's health services, Jia Tolentino writes in the latest edition of The New Yorker.
There's something undeniably sad, even pathetic, about Space Center Houston announcing a Kickstarter campaign to help save and restore NASA's historic Mission Control at Johnson Space Center, now fading and neglected despite its status as a National Historic Landmark. "An overhead light flickers sickly in the Mission Operation Control Room 2 at Johnson Space Center," the Chronicle's Andrew Dansby wrote last year.
Between 2012 and 2016, the cases of more than 200 police officers who shot people in the line of duty came before grand juries in Harris County. None were indicted. Mimi Swartz, a Houston-based author and an executive editor at Texas Monthly, writes in Thursday's New York Times about her tenure as a Harris County grand juror in 2013, that began with a jail tour, a demonstration by the county the K-9 unit and a shoot/don't shoot simulation that amounted to "an exercise in indoctrination."
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".
