Wonder how this year’s elections might warp lawmaking in the 2018 Legislature? Look no further than Friday’s traditional pre-session briefing for journalists. The three months that will comprise the legislative session correspond roughly to the months remaining before the May primary. It seems like half of Idaho’s 105 legislators are running (OK, six, but it feels like a lot more) for the open seats for governor, lieutenant governor or 1st District Congress.
This is Idaho and it’s 2018. What are you going to do to make this year special? We asked several of our contributors to offer their suggestions about outings you should consider to make 2018 memorable. No. 1 At 12,662 feet, Borah Peak is Idaho’s tallest peak and a worthy destination for any Idaho outdoors person in good shape, ready for some scrambling and not afraid of heights. Whatever you’ve heard about Chickenout Ridge, it’s mostly mental.
Corinne Higgins is rebuilding her life the way she decorated her new apartment for the holidays. One piece at a time, one day at a time. “I started in early November, and every time I got paid, I bought a couple ornaments,” she said. “And by the time we put (the Christmas tree) up, we had a lot.” The ornaments on the tree, the stockings on the wall, the small signs that read “Thankful. Grateful.
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".
