Kurt from Boulder writes, “What is driving you crazy? There is a stretch in Boulder on Arapahoe Ave from 75th St. to 63rd Street where CDOT came in and installed a dedicated bus lane and removed a traffic lane. It is now taking up to 15-30 mins or more on occasion to travel through this 3-mile corridor. The problem is that a bus comes through very infrequently. It's a ton of wasted space.” I can relate to your frustration Kurt.
Rebecca from Aurora writes, “What’s driving you crazy? When the R line went in, crossings were added as were some lights. I don't understand why the lights don't match the crossing. For example, if you are heading north on Peoria in Aurora, the lights heading east and west will sometimes stay green despite the train crossing and Peoria is left with red lights. It would seem that when the train arms are down, those lights should automatically change but they don't. Am I making sense?
Tis the season to decorate your home with colorful lights. Some people like to extend that festive feeling to their vehicle, adorning the roof of their car with similar colorful lights. Some lights are battery powered while others can be powered from the vehicle’s auxiliary power. There are numerous tutorials with step-by-step directions and tips on the internet.
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".
