Burn scars have been left by wildfires in several areas of the state. With rain on the way, the worry now turns to possible flash flooding. Experts look at several factors to access the danger. Bradley Washa is the State Fuels Specialists for the Utah Bureau of Land Management. He notes concerns over flooding depend on how hot a fire burns, what's left behind, and the steepness of the terrain.
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) - As the area hits record temperatures many residents have voiced anger, and even called police when they see a person panhandling with a young child. Authorities note unless there is a serious problem there is little they can do, because having a child with them is not against the law. Det. Richard Chipping of Salt Lake City Police Department said they will occasionally get calls about these situations. There have been cases where they've had to step in.
SALT LAKE COUNTY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) - While it's hard to track exact numbers on incidents troopers say they've seen an increase in the number fatal and fender benders involving distracted drivers. Thursday went somewhat undercover to show us how bad the problem is. It's not stealthy, but this highway patrol van has a simple message plastered all over it. Just a few minutes into our ride and it was clear many drivers were too distracted to see it.
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".
