Northern Virginia is realizing the consequence of its success. A growing economy and increasing population mean limited space on its transportation infrastructure, evident through its notoriously congested roadways and transit lines. With no ability to expand existing capacity, transportation officials are turning to other means to encourage more efficient use of its network: new tolls on Interstate 66 closest to the region’s core. This is a positive step for transportation in the region.
More than two million households will get £140 knocked off one winter electricity bill this winter. It’s called Warm Home Discount. Most of those eligible will get it automatically, but some have to claim. The discount comes with another huge benefit. From February, all those who qualified will also have the cost of their bills capped. Older people who get the guaranteed element of pension credit should receive the discount automatically.
Transportation in the Unites States is changing. 2017 brought us record setting aviation travel, advancements in groundbreaking vehicle technologies and huge increases in freight traffic thanks to booming online commerce. However, 2017 also solidified transportation as a leader in U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, saw the continued deterioration of infrastructure and continued the decline of subway and bus ridership. The New Year will bring more change with it.
I’ve got flu. If anyone offers it to you, just say no, it’s vile. Tenth day and counting. Don’t expect much out of me just yet. Twitter fell from 1m impressions to almost zero. It so needs feeding! https://t.co/NTot9PFpRG
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".
