If (as Rudyard Kipling might have said, if he cared about Virginia legislative redistricting) you can keep your head (well population count) when all about you are losing theirs …You probably aren’t in Hampton Roads. The Virginia Public Access Project’s new map of changes in voter registrations in House of Delegates districts has the disconcerting news that this early indicator of population trends lags the state average pretty much across Hampton Roads.
Elite Airways, which suspended its plans to launch service from Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport because of “challenging perceptions,” still plans to offer service here, a company spokeswoman said Wednesday. Rebecca Ayers, speaking on behalf of Elite’s CEO and founder John Pearsall, said, “The airline is still planning to return, but I don’t have any definitive timeframe around that for you.”Ayers declined to say what is causing the delay.
Jim Bourey did not want surprises. On May 30, 2014, Gov. Terry McAuliffe was scheduled to visit Newport News for the announcement of the first flights by the startup airline People Express. But with just four days to go, the airline did not have the money it needed to start flying. Bourey stepped in to get things on track. "What I need right away is to totally understand your financial position.
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".
