The city and county are nearing a solution to make sure ambulances respond to non-emergency calls within an hour virtually every time. But Sedgwick County and Wichita leaders put off a final vote for a new EMS contract until next month. The county runs Emergency Medical Services and the city contracts with it for ambulance service. At a rare joint meeting on Wednesday, they agreed to move a deadline for terminating the contract from July 1 to Aug. 1.
Sedgwick County and the city of Wichita have reopened an underground tunnel that runs between City Hall and the courthouse after it was closed for more than a decade. It will be open to certain city and county employees, but not the public. The 350-foot tunnel under Central, just west of Main, offers the only weather-protected route between City Hall and the Sedgwick County Courthouse.
Free conventional HIV testing will be offered Tuesday by the Sedgwick County Division of Health to mark National HIV Testing Day. Residents can walk in or call 316-660-7300 for an appointment from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the department’s clinic at 2716 West Central. It’s projected that one in eight people who are HIV positive do not know they are infected, according to a county news release.
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".
