SALT LAKE CITY -- A federal jury has awarded a former West Jordan police officer nearly $3 million in damages over his claims that criminal charges were leveled against him as retaliation for sexual harassment claims. "This jury verdict is the final stage of vindication for the fact I didn’t commit the crimes at all," Aaron Jensen told FOX 13 on Thursday. In 2009, Jensen accused colleagues at the West Jordan Police Department of sexual harassment.
With recreational marijuana sales beginning in Nevada on July 1, many people from surrounding states like Utah, California, Arizona and Idaho are expected to make a run for the border. As FOX 13 reported back in May, the Utah-Nevada border towns of West Wendover and Mesquite are both contemplating recreational marijuana sales. Some political leaders in both communities believe it could be an economic boom. In covering this issue, we’ve been asked a lot of questions.
SALT LAKE CITY — Recreational marijuana sales are expected to begin in Nevada on July 1, but they won’t likely be anywhere near the border with Utah. A spokeswoman for the Nevada Department of Taxation, which will oversee recreational cannabis sales in that state, told FOX 13 on Friday it still intended to allow sales to begin next week. It follows a legal challenge by the liquor industry, which has sought to get involved in recreational marijuana sales.
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".
