LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Arkansas lawmakers are examining the ripple effects of water fights across the state. A new task force is diving into the operations of the state's 350 water providers to see how they can better serve their three million customers. "That as many people as possible are provided with water," Sen. Alan Clark, R-Lonsdale, told the Water Provider Legislative Task Force Thursday.
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - The Natural State is weeding out a high number of applicants for limited spots in the budding medical marijuana business. The Alcoholic Beverage Control received a total of 322 submissions for the state's five cultivation facility and 32 dispensary licenses. "We knew people would wait until the last day but 200 different applications in the last day? That is not something we had in mind," said Scott Hardin, the ABC spokesperson.
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - The Natural State is weeding out a high number of applicants for limited spots in the budding medical marijuana business. Alcoholic Beverage Control received a total of 322 submissions for cultivation facilities and dispensaries. That comes to nearly 300,000 pages for the five medical marijuana commissioners to review and score, which we found would take more than a year. If they review only the required amount, the first 25 pages of every application, that comes to 11 days.
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".
