Some unusual advertisements are flying high on billboards around Denver this month, and upon a closer look, they’re selling more than just the typical product — they’re selling hope. Messages of unity and courage stand tall on Denver streets. And they share the voices of local youths. “It really started back when students walked out of East High School to participate in the Ferguson protest,” said Rowena Alegria, senior adviser for community communications for the city and county of Denver.
Arvada City Council has overturned a controversial proposal to sell 9 acres in Olde Town to a developer for $30. The land is worth $6 million, according to a recent county assessment, and the planned sale was backed by the city’s Urban Renewal Authority. Dallas-based developer Trammell Crow proposed in 2013 to build a six-story, 256-unit apartment complex on the site next to the long-awaited RTD Gold Line station on West 56th Avenue.
A group of neighbors in Bonnie Brae who are taking back their alleys and making them into friendly places, mostly by making art for them. Years ago, they had the "Alley Wars," fighting the city to get dumpsters out their alleys. Now they are making beautiful mosaic pieces and hanging them in alleys. There are giraffes, cows, Lilies of the Alley, a pink flamingo drinking wine. Neighbors gather in the basement at Wendy Lesko's to make the mosaics. This is "An Oasis in the Desert."
It amazes me how many tourists I see come here and harass our elk and moose for their entertainment. PSA, moose are big, dumb, territorial and will destroy you. Ppl don’t realize how dangerous they are. Watch and appreciate from afar. Is that so hard? /rant. https://twitter.com/matt_kroschel/status/964511302658871298
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".
