ARVADA, Colo. (CBS4) – The curtains were drawn as we talked to two year old Porter Johnson’s family. Outside, cars pulled up. Dozens of people were quietly surrounding Porter’s home where his mom had thrown up a string of lights, but then had to stop. There was too much else to do. It’s been a pretty rough year for Porter and his family. Sometimes he’s really knocked down by the chemotherapy for his leukemia. But he’s still buoyant. “Sometimes he laughs after he throws up,” said his mom Jen Johnson.
DENVER (CBS4) – A decline showing up in statistics on marijuana use among middle and high school students has Colorado officials looking at what’s working. The National Survey on Drug Use and Health shows 9 percent of those students reported pot use over a 30 day period in 2016. That was down from 11 percent the year before.
AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – Forty five years after starting with a mission to help some of the worst victims of childhood trauma, Excelsior Youth Center closed its doors on Friday. The center on a 33 acre campus near Chambers Road and Quincy Avenue in Aurora has been winding down for several years as care models changed and money for helping the most vulnerable declined. “We understand and deeply regret the impact this decision will have on our communities,” said Excelsior CEO Susan Hebert.
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".
