The headline in Friday's Wichita Business journal reads "SNT Media: What now?" SNT Media has gone from a shining example of Wichita's ability to spread its wings beyond aviation to a company facing lawsuits and possible bankruptcy protection. It's the big story in the weekly edition of the Wichita Business Journal, and it's the topic of BizTalk with Bill Roy Podcast Episode 34. Reporter Bryan Horwath has been seeking answers to the questions many have: What happened at SNT, and what's next?
A pair of Wichita police officers, one of whom is no longer on the force, face federal charges in connection with illegal gambling. The U.S. Attorney's office in Wichita says an indictment alleges that Brock Wedman, 48, of St. Mary's Kan., ran an illegal poker game in February of 2014. He suspected there was an undercover officer at the game and asked a pair of Wichita police officers to check him out.
There is no project assignment for young professionals who participate in the Wichita Business Journal's Emerging Leaders program. But a new organization has emerged from the program, led by members of the first Emerging Leaders class. It's called ConnectingICT, and leaders Ty Patton of McCurdy Auction and Todd Lewis of Craig HomeCare are my guests for Episode 33 of the BizTalk with Bill Roy Podcast. Patton was a member of the first Emerging Leaders class.
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".
