City of Boise staffers say the parking rate increases they’re about to propose would make finding a space in the Downtown core easier, because people would be more likely to leave their spots sooner. They could dramatically change drivers’ habits on Saturday in particular if one aspect, charging for what in recent years has been a free parking day, remains part of the plan.
A week ago, Jodi Peterson asked Boise Parks and Recreation director Doug Holloway if he could help a few people find jobs. Within an hour, she said, Holloway called her back to tell her he’d hire three of the people she was asking for. Peterson, co-director of Boise homeless shelter Interfaith Sanctuary, said she contacted Holloway in response to comments she’d heard a couple days earlier from fathers who stay at Sanctuary with their children.
Ada County Highway District hopes to unveil an online map soon that will show which streets in the county have been plowed or treated with salt, sand or magnesium chloride. The map, which will be on the highway district’s website, will shade recently treated streets in colors ranging from light to dark pink, spokeswoman Nicole DuBois said Thursday. The darker the shade, the more recent the treatment. The map will be updated every 12 hours.
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".
