After more than a year of uncertainly about the quality of air they’re breathing, Pasadena residents are getting a monitoring station to take definitive readings of the amount of sulfur dioxide pollution in their area. State officials said this week Riviera Beach Elementary School on Jenkins Road is the best place to put the monitoring device. Other options, including Solley Elementary School and the Orchard Beach Volunteer Fire Department, are being weighed.
The Bowie City Council Monday night voted to go forward with a modified version of its long-plannd indoor sports facility. Council members opted for adding two new sheets of ice – one Olympic-sized, one NHL-sized – but no new court space. Initial plans for the facility included two new sheets of ice and space for five indoor courts. Last year, the city purchased a 20-acre parcel of land on Church Road near Freeway Airport where the facility would be built.
Former Attorney General Doug Gansler, who came in second in the 2014 Democratic primary for governor, said Monday that he will sit out the race for the nomination to challenge Gov. Larry Hogan next year. Gansler, 54, said he had never been planning to run. But it was an option he kept open as the field of Democratic candidates grew. “I enjoy what I’m doing,” Gansler said.
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".
