DENVER - How willing would you be to pay for roads based on the number of miles you drive? The Colorado Department of Transportation just published its report on a pilot program, officially titled the Colorado’s Road Usage Charge Pilot Program, that it tested at the start of the year. CDOT monitored the distance traveled by more than 100 drivers to compare a pay-by-mile system for roads, and the current system - the gas tax.
DENVER - Two community forums were held Tuesday to discuss the use of the name 'Stapleton' -- in a building with the name 'Stapleton' above both entrances. Change The Name Stapleton held two meetings at The Cube near Northfield Stapleton. "I heard everything from, 'I am diabolically opposed to a name change' to, 'It is absolutely what we need to do to have social justice.'
DENVER - Convincing a city to allow you to build a new hotel takes a lot of planning. Forging signatures on a petition of support for that project apparently does not. Marriott Residence Inn wants to build a new hotel at 5580 S. Park Place. On Tuesday night, the Greenwood Village planning commission was going to decide if it would recommend the project to city council. Spoiler alert: the commission did not.
@rooneyfamily@nexton9news I didn’t ask disc specifically, but everyone would pay the same per mile rate. Implementation might be done through Department of Revenue, not sure it could handle dividing out regular drivers from special cases.
@gibwar@nexton9news Lots of questions still to be answered. The device would have to know when you are in and out of the state. How...? Since this is still early stages the answer is not clear. Also not clear how out-of-state drivers would be assessed a bill.
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".
