As was expected, women from the Democratic Women's Working Group (DWWG), as well as multiple men, showed up wearing all black to Donald Trump's first State of the Union (SOTU) on Jan. 30. The idea to wear black was initially proposed by Representatives Jackie Speier and Lois Frankel at the beginning of January, as a way of showing solidarity with survivors of sexual harassment and violence, and to make a statement about its presence in politics.
On Monday, Jan. 29, Republican lawmakers voted in favor of releasing a classified memo that alleges some kind of misconduct by senior FBI officials involved in the Russia investigation. Despite objections from both the Department of Justice and Democrat lawmakers, House intelligence committee Chairman Devin Nunes (along with other Republicans) voted to release what is being referred to as the Nunes memo. Whatever it might be, Republicans think it will help Donald Trump.
The 2018 Super Bowl is coming up on Feb. 4, and for many fans of the sport, it really means hate-watching the New England Patriots and cheering on the underdog, the Philadelphia Eagles. No one doubts the Patriots' skill and success, having won five Super Bowls, so then why do people hate the Patriots? Let me count the ways. In addition to five Super Bowls, the Patriots have won 25 playoff games and 196 regular season games over 17 years, as of September 2017, according to FiveThirtyEight.
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".
