A ferret pokes their head up in one of the cages inside the National Black-footed Ferret Conservation Center, in Fort Collins, Colo. Inside a nondescript building north of Fort Collins, U.S. Fish and Wildlife biologist Robyn Bortner wends her way through a maze of metal cages. Each one has a name. “You’ll notice he’s a male,” Bortner says.
Sam Brasch and Vic Vela recap the final day at the CapitolColorado's state legislature wrapped up its work late Wednesday night. Over the past four months, state lawmakers introduced and debated nearly 700 bills. Among them were some big bipartisan wins — and losses. Lawmakers argued into the last minutes of the session over a plan to re-authorize the Colorado Energy Office. But they couldn’t come to a deal, which means the office will be powering down, July 1, when most of its funding runs out.
Traffic thickens as motorists approach downtown Denver, heading south on I-25, May, 2016. The transportation-related metaphors for HB17-1242, the bipartisan tax bill aimed at securing infrastructure funding, were almost endless: It faced a path bumpier than one of the state’s crumbling highways. Lawmakers’ positions were locked down tighter than the I-70 viaduct at rush hour. Its odds of finally passing were narrower than I-25 south of Castle Rock.
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".
