The Chronicle of Higher Education last week published an investigation into Ashford University, a for-profit college that repeatedly has been accused of ripping off veterans. The story details how the school attempted to establish a second headquarters in Phoenix so it could keep getting federal funding from the GI Bill. Ashford came out looking pretty bad, but Arizona officials didn't exactly come out looking great, either. Now, the Ducey administration is pushing back.
If you were planning on heading to Renaissance Square for your lunch break today, you're in for a surprise. All of the trees are gone. On Saturday morning, the eight ficus trees that once had made the outdoor plaza at Central Avenue and Adams Street so appealing were removed. Most of them had died, as you can see from the photo above — which was taken on Friday morning. Two still looked pretty healthy, but were chopped down anyway.
Upon arriving at CAIR-Arizona’s annual banquet at the Mesa Sheraton, the well-dressed and predominantly Muslim crowd was greeted by women in bejeweled Trump T-shirts screaming into bullhorns. Armed men stood along the side of the road, waving oversize American flags that felt more menacing than patriotic. “TELL ME, SHOULD I HAVE MY HEAD CUT OFF?” one of the protesters yelled over and over again.
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".
