Montgomery County at center of 'early voting' debate
COLUMBUS, Ohio - At least 63 of the 146 companies that didn't win medical marijuana cultivator licenses plan to appeal the state's decision through an administrative hearing process. The list of businesses seeking a hearing includes 47 companies that applied for a large-scale grow license and 16 companies that applied for a small-scale grow license.
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Ohio Senate on Wednesday took the first step to remove Ohio Supreme Court Justice William O'Neill from the bench as the Democrat campaigns for governor. The Senate voted 25-8 on a fast-tracked resolution calling O'Neill, the high court's lone Democrat, to the chamber to make his case to remain on the court. The resolution needs votes from two-thirds of the House to pass. Both chambers can then vote to remove O'Neill with a two-thirds vote, according to the Ohio Constitution.
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- An Ohio bill banning job or housing discrimination against LGBTQ people has the support of the Ohio Chamber of Commerce for the first time in the more than 10 years the legislation has been debated at the Statehouse. The chamber's backing, along with the support of coalition of about 300 Ohio businesses, gives the bill more momentum than it's had before, bill sponsor Rep. Nickie Antonio, a Lakewood Democrat, said Wednesday.
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".
