My night inside one of Denver’s largest homeless shelters is by no means a groundbreaking attempt to try and understand the crisis this city is facing. It is, for what it’s worth, a very brief experience about what a stay is like in a shelter. I picked a warm October night knowing the Denver Rescue Mission would not reach full capacity. I didn’t want to take a bed away from anybody who really needed it.
As she stood by a grocery cart filled with every one of her possessions, 24-year-old Becky Hansen wrapped herself in a blanket. It was beginning to snow. She stared as police and city workers removed tarps and furniture from the sidewalk. Her homeless encampment, a city park just off Broadway and 6th Avenue, was being “swept.”The city encouraged Becky and the others staying in the encampment to go to a shelter that evening, but Becky refused to go. “Oh I don’t like shelters,” Becky said.
HOUSTON - The World Series isn’t the only big event happening in downtown Houston. Thousands of people are gathering for a massive event that may be a “World Series” in its own right. “So this is like the World Series of quilters?,” reporter Jeremy Jojola asked. “Absolutely! You have people from all over the world today,” one attendee said. The International Quilt Market is one event leading up to a quilting convention that draws huge crowds.
@MfsMcs48099@UCDGradStudent@9NEWS I honestly want to spend more time....but the time is not good right now since it is cold. As I mentioned in my reporting, I don't want to take beds away from people. Shelters can often reach their limits on cold nights.
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".
