Former DNREC chief Collin O'Mara, alongside a coalition of unions, boating enthusiasts and others on Wednesday, called on Delaware Sen. Tom Carper to oppose a bill that would allow ethanol to be mixed into retail gasoline at levels above 10 percent during summer months. "There's a reason why gasoline with high ethanol content is currently prohibited from being sold in many places in the summer," said O'Mara, president of the National Wildlife Federation. "It's bad for our air.
After years of planning, state officials broke ground Monday on the first phase of construction for a $50 million rebuilt Newark train station – a project that will add new tracks, accessible platforms and a new station building. When complete, the increased capacity at the station will allow more trains to pass through the Newark area, and could accommodate the possible expansion of commuter rail service from Maryland.
A series of setbacks on an $8.3 million road project in Bear have rankled neighbors, already irritated by a year of construction vehicles turning over dirt on Howell School Road – the sole access way to their isolated suburban neighborhood. “It has been a project that has tested the patience of the local community," said Delaware Department of Transportation spokesman C.R. McLeod.
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".
