By With two weeks to go in this train wreck of an election, the outcome is coming into focus. Hillary Clinton, ahead in all but two swing states, appears on track to get at least 330 electoral votes (some analysts say more)-a comfortable margin over Donald Trump.
By There's one final chapter of Barack Obama's rapidly-dwindling presidency still to be written: what the lame-duck president will try and do during the lame duck session of Congress, which begins after election day--and how Republicans will respond. Much depends on election day itself, of course.
By There's been a lot of commentary on Donald Trump's tax plans, but since he's spoken like the true politician he is-out of both sides of his mouth-it's sometimes hard to figure out exactly what the guy stands for. Take one of the most important parts of his economic agenda: tax rates for small businesses.
By Most people are lousy investors (not you, of course) because they, among other things, allow too much noise to interfere with their decision-making process. They hear something on TV, see a scary headline on a website and their emotions kick in. They trade too often, buying high, selling low and not achieving their investment goals.
By You make more money and have more influence when you're respected by others. By that I mean companies that have good reputations, that make superior products, provide exemplary service and maintain high levels of integrity and accountability are often worth more than those that don't.
As utterly shocking and traumatic as the assassination of John F. Kennedy was, the one person who might not have been surprised that it happened was JFK himself. It's worth remembering, as the 50th anniversary of JFK's death approaches, that the young president had a morbid fascination with sudden death - and sometimes speculated that he would die at the hands of an assassin.
By On September 12, 2001, the day after the towers fell, the Pentagon was hit, and Shanksville violated, America's oldest and closest friends-our allies in NATO-invoked, for the first time in the alliance's 52-year history, Article 5. Article 5 says that if one member is the target of ''an armed attack,'' it ''shall be considered an attack against them all."
By Even when times have been much, much worse than they are today, presidents have tried to convey optimism and good faith. With the Civil War raging in 1861, Abraham Lincoln spoke of America's blessings and his hopes for its "vast future."
By The way the Obama administration talks, it's like the good old days are back. Housing prices are up, the auto industry has staged a strong rebound. Gas prices are low, the deficit's been cut 69%. More than 14 million jobs have been added to the economy.
By The National Rifle Association and the lawmakers it owns in Congress say "liberal gun grabbers" like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are their biggest threat. Actually, they should worry about a far more powerful force: the American consumer.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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
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".
