A virus is destroying entire crops of Kansas wheat. The Wheat Streak Mosaic Virus, responsible for yellowed and stunted fields, has always been around, but it's only recently become more widespread. This is the time of year when wheat fields in Kansas should be lush and green. In some fields, however, the wheat is yell, sparse and flat. The culprit is the What Streak Mosaic Virus. Some farmers affected by it say it's all thanks to their neighbors.
It's not often snow is seen on the ground in late April. But, there was some snowfall in Garden City Saturday. Several cities in southwest Kansas saw several inches of snow fall since Friday evening. People in Garden City say things looked much different Saturday morning than they did by late in the day. When residents woke up, the streets were covered in a blanket of snow. Much of it has melted, but they're not in the clear yet.
President Donald Trump is changing his stance on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which allows the U.S., Canada, and Mexico to import and export goods, tax-free. On the campaign trail, the president had promised to end the agreement, but Wednesday night, he said he is renegotiating NAFTA with Mexican and Canadian leaders. It's a decision at least one Kansas farmer says is good news for the state. Lane County farmer Vance Ehmke is taking a sigh of relief, for now.
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".
