The need to increase capacity of the U.S. electric power grid — to accommodate load growth and support a more diversified electricity generation mix — combined with an aging infrastructure is driving the construction of tens of thousands of miles of transmission lines across North America. Environmental, landowner, regulatory and financial considerations can complicate the design and engineering process when it comes to constructing or rebuilding lines.
OPINION – We’ve had a week for the shock of the mass shooting at the “Route 91 Harvest Music Festival” outdoor concert in Las Vegas to begin to settle. The best and worst of humanity was on display as strangers selflessly came to one another’s aid in the face of calculating, pitiless evil in action. Incredible stories of bravery, heroism and sacrifice have been slowly surfacing as survivors and other bystanders have begun to share their accounts.
OPINION â€“ My comments in this column are directed solely toward the practitioners and promoters of identity politics. To you, I say congratulations. The weekend’s events in Virginia would seem to indicate that youâ€™re finally getting exactly what youâ€™ve wanted. All that screeching about how it was time to stand up and take aggressive action against those knuckle-draggers who threaten our very existence is finally bearing fruit.
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".
