SANDY — Several generations of Star Wars fans brought their families and friends to an advance screening of the saga's latest installment Thursday evening, with many posing next to storm troopers for pictures, battling with lightsabers and hoping the films’ latest heroine would stay away from the dark side of the Force. Some in the audience were still in diapers, while others with greying hair attended an early screening at Sandy’s Megaplex Theatres at Jordan Commons.
SALT LAKE CITY — Two dozen protesters gathered with songs, prayers and menorahs on the first night of Hanukkah, urging Sen. Orrin Hatch and Congress to sustain a federal health insurance program for children in low-income families. "Hanukkah calls on us to be holy in our actions," said Benjamin Luks-Morgan, an organizer with Jewish Action Utah — Bend the Arc. "We want you to make good on your promise to get (Children's Health Insurance Program) funded."
SALT LAKE CITY — A former Mormon missionary from Riverton whose health has declined during his roughly year-and-a-half in a Venezuelan jail has been denied transport to a hospital despite his "delicate state," his family said Monday. A judge in Venezuela issued a court order approving Josh Holt's hospitalization two weeks ago as an intestinal bacterial infection worsened, his mom, Laurie Holt, said, but top Venezuelan officials have directed prison officers to ignore the order.
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".
