LINCOLN — In a year, you may be getting a little surprise on your phone bill.A state agency has ordered changes in the way fees are paid by users of cellphones and other telephones to finance communication improvements in rural areas.Instead of being assessed a fee based on the amount of your phone bill — now 6.95 percent — there will be an as-yet-determined flat fee for every phone connection you have in your home or business.
LINCOLN — Nine years after it was first proposed, the Keystone XL pipeline was granted a route across Nebraska on Monday.But it was not immediately clear whether the pathway — an alternative route not preferred by TransCanada — will prompt construction of the controversial project.Instead of celebrating the approval, the Canadian pipeline developer issued a short statement that it was still “evaluating” Monday’s approval, which promises to increase the expense and delay for the $8 billion...
LINCOLN — The long-awaited verdict on the route of the Keystone XL pipeline across Nebraska will be delivered today.But even if the route receives the green light, it could be months before construction begins because of promised lawsuits and uncertainty over the economic viability of the $8 billion project.The Nebraska Public Service Commission has been reviewing the proposed 275-mile route of the crude oil pipeline since February.
Sure took a long time for @TransCanada to respond to this morning's decision. Hints that they were taken by surprise. It does complicate things for the pipeline firm, and opponents say opens up new legal challenges. @OWHnewshttps://t.co/vQ6Al4iNft
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".
