One of the biggest blood drives of the year wrapped up today (Wednesday). The "Ride to Save Lives" campaign brings in donors, who are aware of the need for blood after motorcycle crashes. Why is a motorcycle dealer so devoted to getting blood donations? Because what their customers see behind the handlebars. Crashes in town bring the need. Scott Edward of United Blood Services told us, "It does touch them hard, and they just really rallied."
Just as Hurricane Harvey long-term recovery efforts begin in Texas and Louisiana, Hurricane Irma threatens devastation as it moves toward Florida and the Carolinas. But even before the storms hit, the ELCA was mobilized and on the ground. Bishops have maintained close communication with their congregations, pastors and deacons. Lutheran Social Service agencies have mobilized their networks. And Lutheran Disaster Response (LDR) has been in regular communication with its local affiliates.
Every penny counts at the gas pump, and in Reno there are worries about the effects of the Texas flooding and closed refineries, and what they will do to your family budget. The cost trend at the pumps headed rapidly upward, and for good reason. Closed refineries in Texas are cutting the supply. UNR employee Carl Davidson had a feeling that would happen, which is why he was out today getting gas at a Quik Stop.
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".
