As the Powerball jackpot soared last month, a “glitch” in another Missouri Lottery game drew far less attention — and no repair for weeks. Throughout most of July and August, the glitch played out over and over on Missouri’s Club Keno and Keno To Go screens across the state. Players who spotted it shared the word in the bowling alleys, bars, restaurants, convenience stores and fraternal lodges where Keno is played. Some said they stopped playing or changed how they played once they saw the glitch.
If Kansas City is to stand a snowball’s chance of landing Amazon’s second headquarters, we’ve got work to do. We’ll have to overcome our existing shortage of tech talent. We’ll need not only to build a new airport terminal but also turn it into a sparkling international launch pad. And make public transportation here a snap. We’ll need to throw millions of dollars in economic incentives at one of the biggest companies in the world.
This article originally was published on Sept. 7, 2003. Kansas City area companies are having second thoughts about telling employees how to invest for retirement. Since the start of last year, five have unlocked millions of dollars in their employees’ 401(k) accounts — freeing employees to sell the shares and invest in less risky mutual funds that the plans also offered. The companies previously had required the money to be invested in their own shares. Many employees, however, aren’t selling.
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".
