New pain at the pump: Credit card skimmers at gas stations
You get home, and the vase you just bought has a crack. Or the roofer who eagerly took the down payment doesn't call back. Or the drill won't. Sooner or later, almost every consumer has a dispute with a merchant over goods or services. In such cases, you can and should gripe directly to the merchant, but consumers who use a credit card to make purchases have an added layer of protection when disputes arise -- if they know how to use it.
In honor of National Coming Out Day, Weber State’s president of the Gender and Sexuality Alliance organization Kestin Page hosted the second annual Weber State LGBTQ+ pride rally event on Oct. 11. The pride rally, which was held in the Weber State’s student union atrium, featured numerous speakers who were both allies or a part of the LGBTQ+ community themselves.
Utah Sen. Jim Dabakis and House Speaker Greg Hughes discussed civility in an increasingly polarized nation and a myriad of other topics in the Weber State University Shepherd Union on Oct. 9. The moderator of the forum, Leah Murray, first asked each of the politicians if they felt the country is polarized and if they believe Utah was as well. Dabakis said despite possible disagreements with Hughes over the course of the forum, they respect each other at the end of the day.
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".
