COLUMBUS - At the heart of Ohio's confusing, contentious battle over Issue 2: the claim the November ballot initiative will lower drug prices in Ohio. The answer: Maybe, for some people, but it's nearly impossible to tell how much. The proposed law would require Ohio's state-managed health care programs, such as Medicaid, to pay no more for medicine than the discounted price paid by the U.S. Department of Veterans' Affairs. Sounds great, right? No one likes high drug prices.
COLUMBUS - A trio of GOP state lawmakers selected West Chester Township Trustee George Lang to fill the Butler County seat left vacant by Margy Conditt's resignation. Lang was one of seven interested in the Ohio House of Representatives seat, which includes West Chester Township, Liberty Township, Fairfield Township and part of Sharonville. Past drama, including a connection to the Dynus scandal and a settled defamation lawsuit, did not dissuade GOP lawmakers from picking Lang.
Amazon unleashed a frenzy Thursday with its plan to build a second North American headquarters that could employ as many as 50,000 people, and states such as Ohio and Kentucky already are scrambling to make their pitches. Well, officially, Ohio and Kentucky aren't saying much about wooing Amazon. Neither JobsOhio nor the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development would comment on the headquarters project.
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".
