Last week, a conservative blog and emails to supporters from the "Yes on 1" campaign's organizers spotlighted a situation in which a person filed a discrimination complaint against the Downtown Hope Center. The complaint, filed Feb. 1 by a person named Samantha Coyle with the Anchorage Equal Rights Commission, said the shelter refused her services because she is transgender. "This is exactly what we've been concerned about and why Prop.
Ballots will be mailed March 13, three weeks before Election Day on April 3. They'll come as first-class mail, which typically takes between one and three days to arrive. Elections officials said a ballot should make it to every registered voter by March 19. When do I need to return the ballot by? Ballots must be postmarked before or on Election Day or placed in one of 12 secure drop boxes by 8 p.m. on Election Day.
That's because Anchorage is holding its first-ever mail-ballot election this spring. It's also the first in Alaska, a test that has played out in other states over the years. Elections officials hope the new format will boost turnout and cut down election costs overall. The last day to vote is April 3. Drop off a ballot in the mail box with a first-class stamp, or save on postage by bringing the ballot to a secure drop box in your area.
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".
