Recently, I helped a survivor, who had lost her retired military spouse, navigate the somewhat confusing benefits in DoD and the VA. Her husband had elected the Survivor Benefit Program (SBP), which provides the survivor up to 55 percent of the servicemember’s military retired pay, yet she also was entitled to Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC) provided by the VA because her husband’s death was determined to have been the result of his military service.
By Senator Patty Ritchie Bees, both wild and managed, play a key role in our state’s agriculture industry, helping crops of all kinds thrive. However, these powerful pollinators are under attack by parasitic mites. The varroa mite, a tiny parasite that attacks honey bees, has infected 90 percent of the bee colonies surveyed this year. As a result, agriculture could see up to $500 million in potential losses.
To The Editor: Over the past two years everyone that either lives or has passed through the city of Fulton from the south entrance via route 481 has viewed our FREE demolition of the Nestle site. Citizens have either read or heard about at least 4 target dates of the completion date and the start date of an Aldi store. Again, the demo was FREE. During these past two years we have witnessed many loads of scrap metal being removed and piles of Construction Debris accumulate. It was for FREE.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
