With much of the country experiencing above-average temperatures, many people are leaving their wool sweaters in storage this fall. But, in addition to the balmy weather, there’s another reason to shun wool garments, and it might surprise you: Buying wool means supporting an industry that leaves gentle sheep battered and bloody. PETA and its international affiliates have investigated dozens of sheep farms and shearing sheds on three continents, revealing horrendous abuse at every turn.
New inventory plus consumer concerns about the national and local economies helped metro Denver’s apartment market see a higher vacancy rate and greater average rents in the first quarter of 2009, compared to the year-prior period, according to a Colorado Division of Housing report released Wednesday. But median rent, considered a truer measure of rent rate, was basically flat year over year.
Vacancies in metro Denver rental housing hit a two-year high of 4.9 percent in the fourth quarter of 2008 because of the weak economy, while monthly rents increased year over year, according to a report released Thursday by the Colorado Division of Housing. For the same period of 2007, rental-home vacancies stood at 3.3 percent, and they were 3.4 percent in last year’s third quarter.
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".
