An accusation of racial discrimination has again been leveled at the Kansas City Power & Light District. An African-American man is suing the district and others over his claim that he was handcuffed to a bench for doing nothing wrong. The lawsuit states that after the man was chained to a bench for sometime, he was set free but not without a ticket for trespassing and a ban for life from the entertainment district.
There was a heated argument on Thursday night after a meeting in KCK where Mayor Holland said a recent audit showed corruption within the fire department. The two men in the video are longtime KCK citizens. They each care for the city, but couldn’t disagree more on an agreement between the fire department and the unified government. Some call it a common practice. Others say it’s clear corruption. Revered Jimmie Banks leads a congregation at Strangers Rest Baptist Church.
UPDATE (7:09 p.m.) - The Unified Government Board of Commissioners did not have a quorum for Thursday night's meeting. However, Unified Government Mayor/CEO Mark Holland is still presenting the report he says shows corruption within the Kansas City, KS Fire Department. Because of no quorum, the Unified Government's YouTube page is not live-streaming the meeting. Holland's official mayoral page is hosting a Facebook Live of the presentation.
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".
