The Aspen Times published a story earlier this month about a group of homelessness men who were at their campsite dining on lobster, rack of lamb, salmon and some imported beer. Just your average cook-out for many valley residents, so why should it be any different for those who don’t have a roof?
The Aspen Skiing Company has built its marketing plan around its values and politics. Joining News Director Carolyn Sackariason on Valley Roundup this morning are Aspen Daily News columnist Mick Ireland and editor Curtis Wackerle. To hear more of the conversation, which includes discussion of controversial development projects in Aspen and news from Garfield County with Glenwood Post Independent publisher and editor Randy Essex, tune in later today at 3:30 p.m.
After 15 months, a 31-member task force has come up with a plan to significantly reduce traffic in the Roaring Fork Valley. This proposed system would include everything from charging motorists a toll to get into Aspen to putting more buses on the highway during busy times to commuters using ride sharing apps. Aspen Public Radio’s Christin Kay spoke with News Director Carolyn Sackariason, who read the group’s 50-page report and spoke at length with one of its members.
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".
