Cincinnati and Hamilton County will soon spend another $400,000 on the fight against heroin addiction, investing in public outreach, a hotline for drug users seeking help and life-saving medical treatment for people who overdose. City council members and county commissioners agreed weeks ago to increase spending by an additional $200,000 each, but they talked Tuesday for the first time about how those tax dollars will be spent.
The heroin epidemic is a nationwide crisis. It’s destroying families, taking lives and costing taxpayers millions of dollars. The Enquirer spent a week in July chronicling the impact of heroin and found at least 180 overdoses and 18 deaths connected to the drug or to synthetic opiates. Some frequently asked questions about the drug and how it works:Heroin is produced from morphine, a natural substance drawn from opium poppy plants.
FRANKLIN, Ohio – Once a week every summer for the past 55 years, Larry Etter pushed his lawn mower into a culvert and past a stand of trees on the edge of his yard so he could trim the grass and weeds around a memorial to Gen. Robert E. Lee. As far as Etter could tell, he was the only one who paid any attention to the thing. “They probably didn’t even know it was there,” he said of his neighbors. They do now.
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".
