Proponents of the break argued on the House floor (where it passed 61-11) that the company that disposes of low-level radioactive waste has been a great corporate citizen and has been harmed by Utah’s “exorbitant” regulatory fees. Opponents countered that the company was doing fine and the fees were fair. Never mentioned in the debate was that EnergySolutions happens to be the single biggest donor to sitting legislators’ campaigns.
Utah police agencies would be prohibited from requiring their officers to rack up tickets or arrests under a bill that would outlaw quotas. Sen. Howard Stephenson, R-Draper, was flanked by two former police officers who said they were pressured to meet arrest and ticketing quotas by their supervisors. When he didn’t, said former Salt Lake City police officer Eric Moutsos, he was seen as insubordinate. “We had to arrest five people a day. Misdemeanor arrests, it wasn’t just traffic,” Moutsos said.
Salt Lake County is hosting several open houses to gather public feedback on six candidate sites for regional off-leash dog parks. Beginning Tuesday in Kearns, this is the first round of public meetings since Salt Lake County Parks and Recreation narrowed a lengthy list of potential sites to six prime prospects. Public input will figure into the final selection of two to three off-leash areas of five-10 acres each, with development expected within the next couple of years.
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".
