SALT LAKE CITY - In 1986, Coretta Scott King spoke to Utah lawmakers from the well of the Senate floor, asking for their votes to create a state holiday in honor of her husband, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. In the days following Kings visit, the legislature stalled in it's attempt to create Martin Luther King Jr. Day, instead compromising with the creation of Human Rights Day. Fourteen years later to the day, Utah was the only state without a day named for King.
SALT LAKE CITY — If you pay attention to Utah politics, you know Jim Dabakis, but you probably don't know the story of how the firebrand gay rights activist wound up in Utah from a childhood in inner-city Boston. The State Senator and former chair of the Utah Democratic Party is changing that in a one man show he'll perform three times this weekend at the Salt Lake Acting Company.
SALT LAKE CITY -- Utahns don't have to get car safety inspections anymore, but they can still get in trouble for having an unsafe car. That's the lesson state troopers want to pound home. They tell Fox 13 they are already seeing more violations of the law that changed on New Years Day. Fox 13 rode along with UHP Corporal Mark Thompson, who pulled over two pickup trucks over the course of one hour for having too much tinting on their side windows.
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".
