The owner of Denver-based CoCal Landscape says the commercial landscaper can't find enough workers who are American citizens, and this year the company had to turn down contracts because it couldn't get enough legal seasonal laborers from Mexico. Like many landscapers across the country, CoCal relies on the H-2B visa program to hire workers, but this year Congress made those visas harder to get. CoCal Landscape and its owner Jesus "Chuy" Medrano were recently profiled in The Washington Post.
This is how you make yourself look like a GOT white walker. Nothing screams “Best Costume winner” like topping off your carefully crafted Halloween ensemble with complementing over-the-top makeup. In fact, the three extreme makeup looks we created here can essentially stand on their own as full-out costumes. And you don’t have to be one of those Instagram makeup pros who appears to spend half their day turning their head into an optical illusion.
The Colorado School Finance Project reports that 80 of Colorado's 178 districts, or 45 percent, have all their schools on four-day weeks. Nine more districts have some schools on four-day weeks, meaning half of all the districts in the state have at least some students on this schedule. Here's how that maps out:Sterling's RE-1 Valley School District, on the northeastern Plains, is about a month into its first school year with a four-day schedule.
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".
