Pack up the car, grab your favorite people and get to exploring the Natural State. Go off the grid in one of the most picturesque (and Instagrammable) portions of the state. Ponca is located in the middle of nowhere, Arkansas, yet it’s only two and a half hours from Little Rock. Start your adventure at the Buffalo Outdoor Center (BOC), where you can get outfitted with gear to float the Buffalo National River or grab a map for a day hike.
It's that time of year when all anyone wants to do is relax on a large body of water because it's too darn hot for anything else. When the Little Rock heat gets you down, we have just the solution: Rock Town River Outfitters. The company was the product of owner and senior guide Samuel Ellis' love for the Arkansas River, according to Rock Town River Outfitter's website. A Little Rock native, Ellis moved to Colorado in 2011 to pursue a life as a guide for a commercial white water rafting company.
The University of Arkansas at Little Rock and CHI St. Vincent on Thursday announced a three-year, two-part initiative to combat a statewide shortage of nurses. The two institutions signed a memorandum of understanding for a plan that will expand student capacity in the UA-Little Rock Department of Nursing and fill staffing needs at CHI St. Vincent.
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".
