Supporters of a proposed veterans cemetery on the city's outskirts say the project would benefit more than just the 40,000 veterans who live within an hour's drive of Sioux Falls. It's also projected to bring millions in economic benefits to the region. The South Dakota Veterans Council this week released projected economic impact statistics of a veterans cemetery in Sioux Falls, something the veterans advocacy group has been working toward for years.
Taking artistic liberties with the South Dakota State Seal could result in jail time if a group of Legislators has its way. House Bill 1102 would make it a Class 1 misdemeanor to replicate the state seal in a way that isn't "full and complete" and does not include the state motto "Under God The People Rule."
As many as 40 acres of city-owned land northeast of Sioux Falls could be transformed into a nationally-recognized veterans cemetery. A bill making its way through the state Legislature would lay the groundwork for South Dakota's first state-run veterans cemetery in the eastern half of the state. The S.D. Veterans Council and state legislators supporting the measure say it's a necessary addition to the state's veterans services for the roughly 40,000 veterans who live within 75 miles of Sioux Falls.
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".
