What was supposed to be an affordable concert has turned into a disappointment for many UNO students. Five dollar tickets to see rapper Logic in April are now being resold for hundreds of dollars online. Some students were priced out. "They definitely got bought up pretty quick," explained student Lauren Leocardi. "I didn't get to buy a ticket and none of my friends really did."
Health care providers are on the cutting edge of the battle against opioid addiction and some of them in the metro are getting proactive in the fight. Pharmacy experts at UNMC say that people addicted to opioids were most likely introduced to them by a prescription from a doctor. It often begins after a minor surgery or procedure. Someone is prescribed a pain killer leading to an addiction. Dr. Chase Pruitt says, “Oral surgeons happen to be the top prescribers of opioids nationally."
Nebraska's budget shortfall could bring the axe down on UNO and UNMC. Wednesday, students and administrators made their case to Nebraska state lawmakers about why they should avoid more cuts. "It's more impactful just to tell our story and how these proposed budget cuts can really just change our lives for the better or the worse," said UNO student Callie Williams who works on the student government.
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".
