Failing to pay close attention to the inner workings of state government in Columbus can be perilous for anyone in healthcare, utilities, education, non-profits, local government, small business and a host of other arenas. That's especially true this time of year as the Legislature returns to work, quietly introducing legislation with broad ramifications across the state. If you don't know what's happening, you can be blind-sided by laws that harm what is vital to you.
The value of tourism for the Ohio counties that border Lake Erie tops $14 billion a year, supporting nearly 124,000 jobs. That's a staggering amount of money, but I think the value of the lake to Northeast Ohio transcends dollars: It defines us. It give us our grit, our quality of life, our identity. That shared connection to the lake is what Advance Ohio seeks to tap into as it begins managing and growing Rockthelake.com, a website devoted to Northeast Ohio's Great Lakes culture.
We've now introduced you to four of the families we're featuring in the series we call, "A Greater Cleveland," and we have a few more to introduce in coming weeks. This week, though, we pause, mainly to bring you updates on some of the children you've already met. You've told us in large numbers that you've been touched by our stories about the families, and we said from the start we plan to keep chronicling their progress as they deal with the challenges related to poverty.
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".
