Only in Arizona: Popular outdoor shopping center built on former "superfund" siteNext time you zap zombies at Dave and Buster's, belly up to a plate of ribs at Lucille's Smokehouse, or behold the epic Cine Capri screen at Harkins Theatres — all at lively Tempe Marketplace shopping center — consider what used to lay beneath your feet. It's enough to make you want a tetanus shot.
Our connection to the Sonoran Desert runs as fast and deep as the Colorado River and the Sea of Cortez. We know it well. From our iconic saguaros and blustery monsoons to spring wildflowers and one-of-a-kind wildlife, the Sonoran is synonymous with Arizona and vice versa. We love everything about it. Yes, even the blistering heat. So would you be surprised to know that Arizona is actually home to three, possibly four, deserts? Now wait a minute, is this a trick question?
Only in Arizona: Saltwater ponds in Gila Bend support crustacean production and create "sweet" treatShrimp tacos, sizzling shrimp fajitas and tangy shrimp ceviche are as much a part of our local fabric as brilliant sunsets, margaritas on the rocks, and Paul Goldschmidt home runs. But we typically don't equate plump prawns with the Sonoran Desert, unless we hightail-it for the weekend to Puerto Peñsaco. But maybe we should.
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".
