The nation’s perception of Boise doesn’t necessarily match up with reality. We’re more than blue turf and the capitol of the potato state. Since 2010, Mayor David Bieter’s office and the Department of Arts and History have worked to change that by creating a Cultural Ambassador designation. “We are a culturally lively city, and that’s not something people in other places know or think about us,” Boise spokesman Mike Journee says.
Neighbors in Boise’s East End have rallied in support of the Roosevelt Market — a beloved community institution — and have formed a nonprofit group to purchase the building and preserve the business run by Susan Wilder and Nicki Monroe. The structure at 311 N. Elm St. is listed at $399,800 through its owner Kealy Baughman’s Trail 27 realty.
Idaho’s Cowboy Ninja Lance Pekus started out strong on the finale of “American Ninja Warrior” on Monday, was knocked out of the finals competition on “wing nut alley.” Pekus was an audience favorite throughout the season, as he competed for his wife Heather, who struggles with multiple sclerosis, and their son, who watched on Skype, and Pekus breezed the first few obstacles on Stage 2 before plummeting into the pool.
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".
