ngela Roberts regularly hikes through Garden of the Gods, where sandstone rock formations heave 300 feet into the sky against a backdrop of Pikes Peak. But Roberts knows when to go there and when not to.“I avoid coming here in the summer and on weekends, for sure,” she says during a recent weekday stroll.
The staff of Colorado Springs' Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department apparently have an abundance of the rarest virtue of the modern age: patience. Asked what can be done when property for a trail can't be obtained, they are all likely to give the same answer: "Wait." Karen Palus, the department's director, explains that the city can only work with a willing seller. But, over time, land owners sell land or pass away. Financial situations change. Companies fall. Grants come through.
The city of Manitou Springs will lower rates at the popular Barr Trail parking lot, where many locals have long parked to hike to the top of Pikes Peak or conquer the Manitou Incline trail.In June, the town raised rates at the lot to $40 a day, but, as reported in the, Senior Planner Michelle Anthony said that the high price tag combined with a cumbersome reservation system have led to the lot not being used, cutting revenues by 50 percent compared to the year before.Fees will now be...
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".
