After a year and a half as executive director of the Chugiak-Eagle River Chamber of Commerce, Dana Thorp-Patterson is going back to school. Thorp-Patterson said Monday she’s accepted a job at Rogue Community College in Oregon, where she’ll be tasked with building the college’s workforce development program. “It’s kind of an unexpected deal,” she said.
The Municipality of Anchorage Parks and Recreation Department is drowning in garbage. The department is shouldering a heavy burden due to what director John Rodda thinks is a growing homelssness problem in the city. “It’s very widespread,” Rodda told the Eagle River/Chugiak Parks and Recreation Board of Supervisors on Monday, Nov. 13. Although camps aren’t much of a problem in Chugiak-Eagle River, they are an ever-present nuisance for department employees.
Members of the local parks board believe steps taken over the last year have improved several areas of concern at the Harry J. McDonald Center in Eagle River. Following a joint work session earlier this month with the Fire Lake Arena Management Inc. (FLAMI) board of directors, the Eagle River/Chugiak Parks and Recreation Board of Supervisors is crafting a memorandum of understanding acknowledging improvements to the center’s finances and management.
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".
