LAKEWOOD - U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-Colorado) is hosting a town hall in Lakewood on Tuesday afternoon. It's the last in a series the senator is holding across the state Tuesday. He appeared in Colorado Springs Tuesday morning and then in Greeley at noon. Gardner's been criticized for not holding town halls by progressives who even held a "Gardner-less" town hall in February. He recently held a joint town hall event in Pueblo with Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colorado) and Gov.
LITTLETON - By now, you've certainly heard of tiny homes, but what about skoolies? The newest trend in the tiny house movement, 'skoolies' are school buses that have been converted into shockingly roomy and unique homes. People who want to spend a lot of time traveling and don't mind the idea of downsizing can buy a used school bus, gut it, and build a home inside to fit exactly what they need.
DURANGO - Inspired by Boulder's popular Tube to Work Day, the city of Durango is introducing a 'Float to Work Day' event this August. Taking place on the Animas River, participants are encouraged to grab a kayak, raft, paddle board, tube or any other floating water craft and make their way down the designated route on the morning on August 25. The start is at Memorial Park where commuters can enter the river at 29th street. There will also be free breakfast, coffee and tea set up at the park.
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".
