At a time when the Alaska movie industry was booming, a union officer stole nearly $200,000 behind the scenes, according to charges filed Monday in federal court. Ann C. Reddig, 62, is accused of embezzling the cash from the statewide stagehand union between 2010 and 2014. Reddig served as secretary treasurer for the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Local 918 from 2007 until her resignation in September 2014, the charges say.
Pot may be legal, but that doesn’t mean cops can sell it. That was the ruling earlier this month by the Alaska Police Standards Council, an agency that oversees officers and prison guards across the state. The council voted unanimously May 3 to ban police from “owning or operating a marijuana business," citing the ongoing federal ban on the drug. Council director Bob Griffiths said the matter needed to be addressed as the fledgling marijuana business begins to grow in Alaska.
When accused Fort Lauderdale airport shooter Esteban Santiago appeared at the Anchorage offices of the FBI in November, he spoke ominously of mind control and ISIS. In his car was a handgun – the same weapon used weeks later to kill five people, prosecutors say. In his arms was a newborn baby. That child is now the subject of a custody filing in Alaska Superior Court.
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".
