Contributing freelance writer/illustrator for such publications as Phoenix Magazine, Catwalk, The Valley Times, The Entertainer, and The Phoenix Dog. I'm currently on temporary hiatus from freelancing to finish my book on the Phoenix Canal Murders. (As mentioned by Crime Watch Daily's Bill Jensen...
Will Escape the Room-Arizona escape the bankrupt fate of other adult role-playing games? The room is strange and narrow, like a walk-in closet converted into a playroom for a child in the 1980s. A poster of Michael Jackson hangs on the brick wall, keeping watch over the retro exercise bike and analog television illuminated with an Atari video game in reset mode. People pay to be locked in this room for an hour.
Daniel Davis is a hard guy to miss. When peddling prints of fantastical creatures at comic and book conventions, the artist – who launched the illustration duo Steam Crow with wife Dawna (pictured) in 2005 – typically wears a striped shirt and brown apron, and sports a handlebar mustache that would probably put somebody’s eye out in close quarters.
Valley Metro puts 120 new buses on Phoenix roads, minimizing the pains of outdated public transportation. Any bus with a lifespan stretching from the era of flattop haircuts to the era of flat-screen televisions is going to have issues. According to the Federal Transit Administration, the average life expectancy of a bus is approximately 13 years, with each traveling about 40,000 to 50,000 miles per year. That adds up to approximately 600,000 miles for the life of a bus.
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".
