BOISE - The Boise State football season started off a little rough with a 2-2 record. Now, with a six-game winning streak, the assistant athletic director for football says more people are coming to the games. "Ticket sales have been pretty steady as of late where we have had 32,000 on up to 35,000 here," said Brad Larrondo. Albertsons Stadium holds just over 36,000 so it's been at about 85-90 percent capacity. Larrondo says they're working to build that number back up.
BOISE - The number of vehicles traveling along I-84 in Canyon County every day has increased by about 30,000 over the last decade. "We have half a dozen cities that have doubled in population since 2000," said Carl Miller, with the Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho (COMPASS). "We anticipate over one million people by 2040." Miller helps COMPASS determine where growth is happening and how to alleviate traffic issues.
BOISE -- The Treasure Valley is booming. The Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho, or COMPASS, estimates nearly 670,000 people live in Ada and Canyon counties. That's an increase of 26,000 people from last year. By 2040, our population is expected to be over one million people. And more people are taking notice of the Treasure Valley. "Every time we turn around we're making a top ten list," notes real estate agent Kerrylyn Miller.
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".
