All plants at Oakdale Park in Salina are very green. What might be surprising is seeing that the water in the Smoky Hill River is also green. Park officials say residents have nothing to worry about because that green layer on the water is not toxic. "This is what we call duckweed and it's none toxic, it's just something vegetation that grows in water that doesn't have a lot of movement," said park superintendent, Rick Martin.
Some Wichitians are buying international driver's licenses around the city, paying around $150. The Kansas Dept. of Revenue says the licenses, which are listed as made by the United Automobile Association, are fraudulent. A Bloomberg webpage says the United Automobile Association "operates as an auto club, providing online auto services in China." However, the website associated with the United Automobile Association does not work.
Like a proud parent, Gay Gower talks about her grandson's accomplishments. "For his use of technology with his chair, he received Infinitech outstanding technology achievement," she said. But that's not all. Her grandson Dustin Gower has also been featured in his high school newspaper multiple times. "He made some artwork and he donated that as part of their community school service day," Gay said. The recognition means so much for the family because Dustin is a unique 17-year-old.
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".
