We told you Wednesday about the signs police look for to spot drugged drivers on Vermont roads. Now, we're focusing on a test that the state is using. Kyle Midura explains why it's controversial. Vermont State Tpr. Jay Riggen says data shows that about 1 in 50 drivers on the road at any time are under the influence of something, and whether it's recreational or prescription doesn't change the level of danger on the roadway. "The reality is impairment is impairment," Riggen said.
In a room full of doctors, nurses, and medical staff from the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina offered her professional opinion of the current state of government. "It's bloated, it is corrupt, it is inept," Fiorina said. The former secretary at a small real estate firm who worked her way to the top of a Fortune 50 company, Fiorina painted herself as a political outsider capable of leading the country.
The Amtrak Vermonter derailed Monday morning in Northfield, plunging a train engine and passenger car into a brook, and leaving all 102 people on board the five-car train shaken. Despite the mess on the tracks, no one was killed. The Monday morning train crash will now cause headaches for travelers Tuesday. One person remains in the hospital after the crash. Amtrak says it is a member of the train's crew whose injuries are described as non-life threatening.
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".
