Heroin and other opioids kill hundreds of Cincinnatians each year. First responders are stretched. Treatment centers are packed. The city government has moved to combat the epidemic, though some say too slowly. Both mayoral candidates say battling heroin is a priority. Experts and politicians both know there isn't a silver-bullet solution, but what ammunition, if any, will Yvette Simpson and John Cranley bring to the mayor's office if elected?
Cincinnati is successfully fighting crime, but police remain under a microscope. The next mayor must keep the crime charts sloping in the right direction and be ready for the next police-involved shooting. By many measures, Cincinnati is safer now than it has been in years. Since 2013, violent crime has fallen more than 11 percent. In fact, it has decreased each year since 2008, according to FBI statistics. Property crime also dropped about 11 percent since 2013.
Cincinnati's fight over the streetcar may yield one benefit everyone in the city can get behind: a new way to allow neighborhoods to pay for their own special projects. A neighborhood wants a new park, extra police patrols or street beautification? It will soon be able to use money from a special program pioneered to help pay for the streetcar. If the city gives a developer a tax break on a new building in Westwood, part of the property taxes they would have paid will go to back to Westwood.
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".
