About a dozen Boulder County girl scouts from Troop 3010 wore safety goggles and aprons on Thursday as they swung hammers and waited their turn for a Home Depot employee to take a band saw to a block of wood that would soon be a pinewood derby car. "I'm building a cheese car," said 10-year-old Ainsley Dye. "I studied cheese for a school project about two years ago, so I know a lot about cheese. I thought, why not have a car that goes fast and represents me?"
The owner of an assisted living facility north of Longmont who was arrested last year on charges that he defrauded elderly residents was convicted on Thursday of three counts of theft from an at-risk elder and one count of felony theft. A Boulder County jury found Christopher Allison Butler not guilty of two additional counts of theft from an at risk elder. Prosecutors had previously dismissed numerous counts of theft, identity theft and fraud.
Bear No. 317 sits in a tree near 14th Street and Dellwood Avenue in Boulder on Sept. 22, 2015. The bear and it cubs were trapped and killed by wildlife officials less than a month later. Earlier this month, state wildlife officers killed a bear that had attacked goats in north Boulder, the first time since No. 317 was killed that a bear has been euthanized in Boulder.
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".
