PHOENIX - Think your commute is bad? Think again. According to newly-released data from the U.S. Census, Phoenix has the shortest average commute time of the twelve largest U.S. metro areas, at 25.9 minutes per trip. Los Angeles clocked in at 29.2 minutes and New York City fared worst, at 35.6 minutes. Compared to the Valley, drivers in the Big Apple spend more than three extra days in traffic each year.
PHOENIX - It takes less than 30 minutes under the Arizona sun to damage your skin, according to Dr. Pablo Prichard with John C. Lincoln Hospital. Over time, improper – or lack of -- sunscreen use can lead to severe skin conditions. “Unfortunately, I get 30-year-old girls – and 30-year-old guys – who look like they have the skin of 40- or 50-year-olds,” he said.
SCOTTSDALE - Neighbors are taking action against a Scottsdale halfway house that, based on city actions, may be violating a zoning ordinance.“The concern is that the more we have group facilities in [the neighborhood] the less it’s going to be children for my kids to grow up with or neighbors to borrow butter from,” said Meghan Liggett. Liggett recently purchased a home on 64th Street near Shea.
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".
