Sioux Falls emergency officials agreed Wednesday to abandon the dispatch term, which raised red flags earlier this year with some top local officials, causing them to ask questions the locally hired ambulance service, Paramedics Plus. The change was proposed along with a couple other tweaks to 911 dispatch policies for busy periods when no ambulance is immediately available to respond.
The Senate is expected to vote Wednesday on an amendment that would repeal Obamacare that wouldn’t take effect for two years. The two-year delay is intended to give lawmakers time to come together on a replacement plan before people lose their health care. The amendment follows two Senate votes Tuesday, where the Senate approved a "motion to proceed" but rejected an amendment that would have repealed and replaced the Affordable Care Act. You can watch the vote live and check back for updates below.
The president's job approval rating in the state during his first six months in office was 57 percent. That's according to Gallop Daily tracking interviews with 280 South Dakotans between Jan. 20 and June 30. Trump's support in South Dakota ranked third highest nationally behind West Virginia and North Dakota. The Republican won South Dakota's three electoral votes last November with 61.5 percent of the vote. The president has averaged 40 percent job approval nationally since his inauguration.
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".
