Audio: In-State Tuition Proposed For Those Who Aided US In War ZonesIn war zones like Iraq and Afghanistan, locals who work for the United States armed forces -- interpreters, drivers, fixers and others -- can be in just as much danger as soldiers. Those in the most danger are frequently admitted to the U.S. under special visas. But some run into another roadblock when they arrive: It can be tough to pay college tuition and further their educations.
Audio: The Dr. Ruth of Dinosaurs Talks About Their Mating HabitsToday we’re going to take a different approach to Valentine’s Day. Instead of hearts and flowers we're going to talk about hearts and fossils -- dinosaur fossils. And we’ll ask a very direct question: How did dinosaurs have sex? Think, for instance, about Colorado's own state fossil, the stegosaurus, with its plates of armor and spiked tail. The answer? Even scientists don't know.
Voting at the Hiawatha David Jr. Rec. Center polling station in Denver's Park Hill neighborhood on Election Day 2016. Russia is likely to meddle in this year's election. That's what intelligence officials told members of Congress Tuesday morning. Colorado elections director Judd Choate tells Colorado Matters the state's in pretty good shape compared to the rest of the country, but that there are vulnerabilities here.
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".
