Traffic guy in Denver, Colorado for the ABC-TV affiliate. Former helicopter reporter for TV and radio, something that I miss doing. Husband, father of two great girls and still waiting to become independently wealthy.
Grace from Denver writes, "I recently had an incident at The Clock Tower on Arapahoe St at the 16th Street Mall. Can you please ask/tell whomever is rezoning bike lanes with parking/loading zones that 1) sidewalks are not loading zones, and 2) there is a giant merge arrow there, and I hope it was for a reason? Exactly where is a person supposed to merge with some right-of-way?
Molly K from Denver writes, “What in the world is going on with the light at 18th and Broadway?! The light is set so far ahead of the crosswalk and into 18th so at EVERY. SINGLE. LIGHT CYCLE some poor South Broadway bound soul finds themselves marooned in the intersection blocking the lanes of those traveling 18th. The horns honked at those stunned souls is merciless when really their only mistake is missing the small "stop here on red" sign half a block back.
Steve in Denver writes, “What is driving you crazy? This new trend of guys mounting these strips of hundreds of bright LED lights either on the front bumper or roof and driving down the streets and highways. Really? I can understand using them off road, but wonder what the legality is concerning using them in town. So bright! Too bright!”I too have seen and been ahead of drivers who have these auxiliary light kits.
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
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".
