The proposed Shadowgrass Apartments development is on its way to the Longmont City Council, after nine neighbors to the proposed complex appealed the June 21 Longmont Planning and Zoning Commission decision. Plans for the eight three-story building complex on the southwest corner of 17th Avenue and County Line Road angered neighboring homeowners who believe the apartments will increase crime, traffic and school crowding while reducing their property values and obstructing their views.
Voni Faus was on a roller coaster of emotions. The Niwot resident woke up early Thursday morning because her 15-year-old dachshund, Bitz, was yelping. When she got up to check what was wrong, she found Bitz in a crumpled heap on the floor, unable to stand. She and her husband rushed Bitz to an emergency veterinarian, who told them it was likely a herniated disc, because dachshunds are known to have back problems.
Justin Thiok’s voice was already low as he spoke in the University of Colorado Denver’s Auraria Library on Monday, but when he discussed the circumstances that caused him to leave Africa in 2001, he dropped the volume to barely above a whisper. Thiok is one of several Sudanese refugees who were relocated to Colorado from camps and other locations in Africa by the United Nations.
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".
