The Coconino National Forest will switch to Type II fire restriction mode starting June 22. Several factors went into the decision. The 90 degree days combined with dry lightning make for prime fire starting conditions. But when you add humans to the mix, then forest officials lay down the law. Even though forest officials had prohibited campfires starting June 15, they found 34 abandoned campfires last weekend.
The Navajo Nation, the largest reservation in the country, is finally getting its first Starbucks in Window Rock. This is another sign that the tribe’s capital city is growing. From Window Rock, the closest Starbucks is a half hour away in Gallup. Local leaders are excited to see new businesses as it means an opportunity for jobs. Half the tribe is unemployed. Today it’s easier to get a business started on the reservation, as economic development policies have removed some of the red tape.
The Navajo tribal government has been giving out bonuses to its employees, totaling millions in public funds according to a recent audit. Over the last five years the Navajo Nation doled out $5.8 million in bonuses. The Navajo Nation Office of the Auditor General found one government employee received a bonus worth more than half his salary. Three workers received between $10,000 and $20,000. Some were awarded bonuses even after a mediocre performance review.
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".
