Dear Joan: How badly are all of the sellers in this valley going to be impacted by no snow this year? Everyone speaks of Vail as being the "golden goose" that lays the "golden eggs" for the success of all the businesses and, of course, the real estate market. Without the draw of our great skiing, are buyers going to be weary of buying here and/or not even come to the valley this year?
Dear Joan: I keep hearing rumors about a huge senior medical center and a bunch of tiny homes that are going to be built between Eagle and Gypsum. If this is true, then I am not sure how I feel about this development. Why are we worrying about seniors when we don't have enough housing for young families? And I have heard Aspen is doing some rental tiny homes for their employee housing, so is this the plan here? Not sure why we have not heard more if it is true.
Dear Joan: I am working on buying some land, something I have wanted to do for a very long time, but I am just learning what I do not know. Since there is no "town" water, no sewer, no cable TV and no driveway, what do I need to know before I make an offer? Do I need water rights to get water? Can I dig a septic anywhere? I think I can get a satellite for TV, not sure about internet/cell service. Do I need a paved driveway to get in and out in the winter?
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".
