Bob Kustra remembers a very different campus when he took over as president of Boise State University in 2003. It was more of a commuter school, with about 18,500 students. Now, it’s bustling with more than 24,000 students from all over Idaho, the West, the country and the globe. “I think walking out of this office and trying to get across the quad when classes change is a remarkable feat these days,” he said. “You need a traffic light to pull that off.
For low-income women in Idaho who have unintended pregnancies, abortion is a tough decision that becomes much harder because they must pay for the procedure out of pocket. Idaho bans insurance plans from covering abortions, except in cases of rape, incest or to save the woman’s life. The state’s Medicaid program does not cover them, and insurance plans sold on Idaho’s health exchange don’t either.
An oversight at a new St. Luke’s hospital in Nampa is keeping it from being able to take non-emergency patients who have government health insurance — from its opening Oct. 30 through at least the early weeks of December — unless those patients agree to potentially pay their own hospital bills. The hospital is licensed to treat all patients. But it has yet to get the approval it needs to bill federal health insurance plans including Medicare, Medicaid, Medicare Advantage and Tricare.
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".
