Christin Kay and Elizabeth Stewart-Severy bring you the biggest local news stories from the week. The meager early season snow could spell trouble for avalanches in the backcountry later on this spring, and Challenge America is hosting its first ever military ski week. Also, some local businesses are actually winners because of the bare mountains. People might have their rock skis out on the hill, but there’s nothing but smooth sailing ahead on Mountain Edition.
The tension between the U.S. and North Korea has ratcheted up in the past year. Dr. Jeremy Bernstein is a retired theoretical physicist, science essayist and former writer for The New Yorker. He’s also an honorary member of the Board of Trustees for the Aspen Center for Physics. Christin Kay talked with him about North Korea’s nuclear weapons program, as well as what it was like for him to have one foot in the scientific community and one foot in the literary one.
On this snowy afternoon, hosts Christin Kay and Claire Woodcock bring you the week's biggest local news stories. There are local implications of the Senate’s tax overhaul, and the debate continues over the City of Aspen transferring water rights. Also, there are even more allegations of sexual misconduct from lawmakers at the Colorado state Capitol. We also lighten things up and hear about concerts and film screenings coming up this winter.
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".
