Thanks to significant snowfall, slash piles were ignited in the Springbrook Acres area on Tuesday. Burning is taking place in the common acreage area, located on the western slope of the Skyline Drive ridgeline. Ignitions are expected to last at least two days, and smoke and flames will be clearly visible from Sheridan Lake Road. Smoke may linger for days. The Rapid City Fire Department issued burn permits for the area earlier this month.
U.S. Rep. Kristi Noem gave an open invitation to the NRA. This comes after Dallas, Texas Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway asked the NRA to hold its national convention somewhere else. The NRA planned to hold the convention there in March. So why is Caraway telling the NRA to change plans? He cited the recent Florida school shooting, five Dallas police officers who were gunned down in 2016, and the JFK assassination in 1963.
Pennington County’s Board of Commissioners said they’re making progress on a new mining permit ordinance. The current ordinance is geared toward aggregate mining, which produces cement, sand and gravel. But many community members worry about mineral mining and the impact it has on the environment. After the first reading of the ordinance, the board determined that each permit for aggregate mining will be valid for 5 years.
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".
