The state Supreme Court has upheld the convictions of two Wichita murderers – one who beat a radio-station worker to death with a fire extinguisher and another who killed a drug dealer in a botched robbery attempt. In separate opinions issued Friday, the court confirmed the convictions of Antwon D. Banks, Sr., and Corey Pollard.
A pharmacist pleaded with the Wichita City Council to budget money to equip police and firefighters with a life-saving emergency antidote to treat opiate overdoses. Lisa Vayda said she wants first responders to carry a drug called naloxone. It comes in a nose-spray form that can easily and quickly be administered to a person who has overdosed, potentially keeping the person alive until an ambulance can arrive and paramedics can take more aggressive medical action, she said.
Wichita City Hall security officers shut down activists who were trying to solicit signatures Thursday for a petition to reduce marijuana penalties. Two petitioners, Janice Bradley and Russ Pataky, attempted to collect signatures in the lobby outside the City Council chamber as people arrived for a special evening meeting to take public comment on the proposed 2018 budget. Bradley and Pataky are leaders of a petition campaign for an initiative to reduce the penalty for marijuana possession to $50.
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".
