Phoenix Parks and Recreation will plant five new trees at Sherman Parkway, a park in a south Phoenix neighborhood where the lack of landscaping has fueled the urban heat-island effect. A parks department representative announced the plan at a neighborhood association meeting on Oct. 19, according to the association's president, Emma Cordova. The move comes after The Arizona Republicreported residents' complaints about a dearth of shade in the park near Interstate 17 and West Grant Street.
The Arizona Republic used outdoor and indoor sensors to compare heat in different homes, including one man's pickup truck, and neighborhoods within Maricopa County. Arizona State University’s School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning programmed the sensors and lent them to The Republic. Sustainability scientists David Hondula and Ariane Middel of ASU and Temple University, respectively, advised The Republic on how to gather comparable results from the sensors.
Daniel Runyan's towel draped across the bench seat of his blue 1997 Chevrolet pickup. A change of dress clothes hung behind the seat. Instrumental music played over the radio. At 6 p.m., the temperature in his truck, parked in the speckled shade of a mesquite and its door wide open, was over 110 degrees. He opened a cooler in the truck bed and grabbed a bottle of water from the melting ice. Runyan lives in his truck. He’s 67 and has cancer. His doctors told him it's terminal.
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".
