TUCSON - Arizona is approaching 1,000 wildfires on the year, according to the Southwest Coordination Center. The Southwest Coordination Center mobilizes resources for wildland fires and keeps tracks of incidents throughout the southwest. So far, Arizona has had 993 wildfires burn 152,294 acres.Of the 993 wildfires only 87 of them have been caused by lightning.
TUCSON - More than 100,000 acres have burned across southern Arizona so far this year prompting Stage II Fire restrictions across the area. Extreme heat along with hazardous fuel conditions means the Department of Forestry and Fire Management will now implement Stage II Fire Restrictions on state-owned and state-managed lands within Cochise, Greenlee, Graham, Pima, Pinal, and Santa Cruz counties.
TUCSON - Tucsonans just made it through one of the hottest stretches of weather ever recorded in the Old Pueblo. Southern Arizona is not done with the heat quite yet, but several records have already met their match this week. Daytime highs from June 19-21 of 115,116 and 115 degrees respectively, all either tied or broke the daily record high for those dates.
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".
