State officials have asked the federal government to lift development restrictions on the land that hosts the West Yellowstone airport, a move that would allow them to consider building hotels or commercial billboards on the property.
Even if the federal government shuts down tonight at midnight, the gate to Yellowstone National Park will remain open. There just won't be as many park employees around. Heather Swift, a spokeswoman for the Department of the Interior, said in an email Friday that the department expects the government will remain open. But if it doesn't, she said, national parks and other public lands "will remain as accessible as possible while still following all applicable laws and procedures."
Yellowstone National Park announced Thursday morning that some of the bison that escaped captivity have been found near Mammoth Hot Springs. The announcement did not give any more detail about how many of the escaped bison had been seen in the Mammoth area. Park staff are monitoring the animals' movement and will try to capture them if they return to the area around the Stephens Creek Capture Facility.
Confirmation of being from the trap hinges on a small ear tag that's hard to see on the furry head of a bison. And, like we meek park visitors, park staff are not allowed to get too close to a bison. #mtnews#Yellowstone
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".
