Interstate 17 commuters will soon see signs of a winter wonderland emerge in the desert bordering the freeway. Nineteen acres of dirt and brush north of Jomax Road is now just raw land. But by November, organizers say it will transform into “Illumination,” an ambitious holiday attraction. Crews will create a 1-mile driving loop that takes vehicles through a synchronized light show, said Simon Kreisberger, who is helping launch the project.
Phoenix's flagship Burton Barr Central Library will reopen for full service in June 2018 after severe storm damage, city officials announced Friday. The downtown library closed immediately after a July 15 monsoon storm. Its five floors flooded when a fire-sprinkler pipe burst. Until Friday, staff could not provide a timeline of when it would open for use. City officials said they were awaiting results of an investigation into the incident and the full scope of repairs that will be necessary.
Inspectors warned Phoenix nearly a year before a burst pipe caused the closure of Burton Barr Central Library that a sprinkler system on the fifth floor was "full of holes" and could leak water throughout the building, according to records obtained by The Arizona Republic. A second identical warning came about six weeks before that exact scenario happened. City officials now say it will be next June before Phoenix's flagship library reopens.
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".
