Delta Air Lines was developing cold feet about what became a $3.1 billion rebuild of Salt Lake City International Airport. So Maureen Riley ramped up some tough negotiating and sharp-eyed budgeting skills. "We want you to slow down" on the project, said Delta, which was rethinking its operations strategy in the West and what role Salt Lake City may play in the wake of Delta's merger with Northwest. But Riley wasn't having it.
Travelers should enjoy relative clear sailing on Utah's highways — with only minor delays in a few spots — for the long, upcoming July Fourth weekend. The Utah Department of Transportation says it expects traffic to be lighter than on other summer holidays because Independence Day falls midweek on a Tuesday, stretching out traffic over more days and work schedules preventing some people from taking longer trips.
The Sugar House streetcar, or S-Line, is about to become more frequent and convenient, thanks to a $4.5 million contribution by Salt Lake County. Officials say that should also speed already extensive redevelopment along its two-mile length. Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams announced the contribution Tuesday, which will be combined with a $1.9 million federal grant to double-track a section between 300 East and 500 East, and help pay for more service that would result.
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".
