The Greater Wichita Partnership has announced this morning that Sedgwick County will not offer any incentives to help lure a Tyson chicken processing plant. It is now unlikely the county will be chosen for the project. Sedgwick County Commissioner Michael O’Donnell says the commission will move on and focus its resources elsewhere. “The marketplace for new jobs especially at this level is very competitive and no community has unlimited resources,” O’Donnell says in a news release.
Water remains a key priority for members of the Kansas Farm Bureau, who approved their 2018 legislative agenda Tuesday. Whether it’s preserving the Ogallala Aquifer in western Kansas or coming up with a plan to prevent sediment buildup in reservoirs in eastern Kansas, making sure farmers have enough water to use in the future continues to be a focus for the Kansas Farm Bureau. KFB President Rich Felts said there’s still a lot of work to be done, but that Republican Gov.
The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism wants more people to get outdoors on Black Friday. The Kansas State Parks system won’t be charging entrance fees at any of its parks on Friday. (See a list and map here.) Division director Linda Lanterman says that although she enjoys Black Friday shopping too, she hopes people will also take the opportunity to do something a little more active than spending time waiting in line at the mall. “It’s just a good habit to get into," she says.
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".
