The Gateway Arch visitor center is still crawling with construction workers, but its 46,000-square-foot expansion is close enough to being finished that officials were willing to give reporters and photographers a peek Thursday. The underground facility will open to the public in July, said Ryan McClure, director of communications for the Gateway Arch Park Foundation, one of the project partners. Wearing a hardhat and fluorescent vest, he stood at the new main entrance, which faces west.
The Las Vegas shooting reminded security officials at St. Louis hotels, amphitheaters and other venues that they must stay vigilant to protect the public. But it also showed the challenges of stopping someone like Stephen Paddock. “It’s a constant battle,” said Scott Cluck, physical security specialist at the Gateway Arch. “You can’t really stop anyone who’s willing to die for his cause.
It wasn’t easy for Brandee McReynolds to tell her husband that she was really a man in her heart and mind, that she had been trapped in a woman’s body for decades and wanted to transition to the right gender and sex. Then she had to sit down their four children. “At first, it was kind of shocking, and I was a tiny bit disappointed because I knew I would be the only girl in the family,” said daughter Alexandria, 13, of Highland. “But I support MaPa.
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".
