Two Democratic state lawmakers are looking to casinos to help pay down Kentucky’s massive pension liabilities, but the plan is unlikely to gain a foothold in the General Assembly. Reps. Dennis Keene and Rick Rand have prefiled Bill Request 149, calling on the state to expand gambling with an eye toward raising up to $500 million in new revenue over the state’s two-year budget period.
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul remains firmly in the “no” column on Senate Republicans’ latest attempt at a healthcare overhaul, but there are conflicting reports about the bill’s chances. The Affordable Care Act replacement bill crafted by GOP Sens. Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham appeared to face long odds upon arrival, but has been picking up steam as the White House pushes for a last-ditch effort to undo Obama-era health reforms.
A contested development slated for a scenic area of Lexington has been given the go-ahead by the city’s main planning body. Ball Homes’ plan to develop a peninsula surrounded by a Kentucky American Water Reservoir off Squires Road sparked intense debate and a marathon 7-hour Urban County Council meeting back in April. But now, the proposal – which includes hundreds of homes and apartments, along with land for a possible middle school – received a final 6-1 vote by the planning commission Thursday.
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".
