Ghoul morning and haunty Tuesday! While Eric Lubbers takes some time to recharge so he can power through the holidays, you've got my musings about Halloween, a holiday that has been a favorite since I was a child. There's candy! There's costumes! There's candy! There's pumpkin craft projects! And there's bugging strangers for yes, more candy! (This probably explains why I have a mouthful of dental work now.) Before we embrace the sugary comfort of All Hallow's Eve, let's get to the news.
Video stories from The Denver Post’s award-winning series “Drilling Through Danger” and from a project on a survivor who lived in Colorado’s Japanese internment camp won three Heartland Emmys at the annual awards ceremony Saturday. The Denver Post received the Community Service Award for videos in the Drilling Through Danger project, which recounted the 51 Colorado deaths from 2003 to 2014 that were related to jobs in the oil and gas industry.
Every year, in the month before Christmas, my sisters and I pull out our old recipes and gather family and friends to make a Polish delicacy, pierogis. The countertops and tables in our kitchens end up covered with tea towels, cutting boards, bowls, measuring cups, pots and pans.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
