CONCORD – In December of 1997, the state Supreme Court issued its landmark Claremont II decision, calling for equal access to an adequate education across the state, regardless of community wealth or property values. As the 20th anniversary of the decision approaches, the New Hampshire Center for Public Policy Studies has completed a detailed analysis of education funding in the state and concludes that little has changed since 1997.
(TNS) -- CONCORD, N.H. — Every time the Executive Council approves another contract between a state agency and a vendor, Democratic Executive Councilor Andru Volinsky of Concord asks the same question: What is the hourly rate of their lowest-paid employee? Since January, he’s gathered data on 27 different contracts, with only two vendors who declined to provide wage information.
— An attempt by Sen. Andy Sanborn, R-Bedford, to cut more than $73 million from Republican Gov. Chris Sununu’s revenue estimates for the next state budget failed in a key Senate committee vote Monday. The three Republicans on the five-member Senate Ways and Means Committee voted as a block on May 17 to endorse the most conservative revenue estimates yet produced in the budget process, approving the projection of $4.89 billion supported by Sanborn, the committee chair.
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".
