Developers are winning their battle with Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell over his affordable housing mandate, at least so far. Caldwell started pushing more than three years ago to require that all large new developments include lower-priced units. Many other cities already do that to help provide affordable housing and stave off segregation between the rich and the poor.
When Esme Yokooji saw the alert Saturday that a missile was heading to Hawaii — complete with huge capital letters saying “THIS IS NOT A DRILL” — she put her dog inside the house, locked the doors and grabbed her 9-year-old sister. Yokooji, 19, held her little sister in a bathtub in their Kailua home and tried to be strong. For a few excruciating minutes, she thought they were going to die. It wasn’t until her mother came home that they realized it was a false alarm.
Nearly half of Hawaii residents struggle to afford basic necessities, according to a new report by the nonprofit Aloha United Way. Having a job isn’t enough to afford life in the Aloha State. The study of Census data from 2015 found that 37 percent of working households — more than 165,000 households — were above the federal poverty level but didn’t earn enough to afford necessities like housing and health care. Another 11 percent of the state’s residents were impoverished.
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".
