Next year, home owners all over Oahu will be seeing a jump in the assessed value of their homes, which in turn, means they could pay more in property taxes. But Sherrie Kuroda with Locations Hawaii says this shouldn’t be cause for too much concern, “A rise in any kind of tax always concerns people but fortunately for us tax assessment has lagged behind market value for homes here in Hawaii.”From Kaaawa to Kahuku, the increase is double digits at 13.4 percent.
The Honolulu Police Department entered a new era in crimefighting when it started testing body cameras. Now that the pilot program is done — will it be rolled out permanently? For 30 days, officers in China Town, Ala Moana, and Downtown experienced first hand what it’s like to have a camera strapped to their chest each time they respond to a call for service. Something Captain Rade Vanic with the Honolulu Police Department says some weren’t so sure about at first.
Related CoverageAfter two large-scale cleanups along a popular bike path in Aiea, homeless campers are starting to return. In August and September, the city cleared more than 80,000 pounds of trash and dozens of tents from the Pearl Harbor Bike Path. While dozens of people were moved into shelters, bicyclists say some are already returning, and are worried the problem could repeat itself. For cyclists traveling along the Pearl Harbor Bike Path, views that were once lined with tents are now clear.
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".
