Missouri's state-run veterans homes have a distinction that separates them from other skilled nursing home providers — and not in a good way.“They are the only skilled nursing facilities in the state of Missouri with a statutory ability to investigate themselves.”That sentence appears in an investigative report delivered to the Missouri Veterans Commission on Oct. 19 by the office of Lt. Gov. Mike Parson. The report was emailed by an anonymous leaker to numerous reporters last week.
Jason Crowell could hardly contain his glee.The Missouri Housing Development Commission, of which he is a member, had just passed a proposal that could forever alter how $200 million in state tax credits will be doled out to developers building low-income housing projects.
Tony Hastings believes Rolando Carter needs a lesson in what it means to be a veteran in America.A St. Louis native, Hastings is 79 years old. He joined the Army in 1958 and was assigned to the intelligence corps in Honolulu, Hawaii. Three years in, an ALS diagnosis cut his service short. A paraplegic, he's been in a wheelchair for 30 years. In 1989 he was told he only had a few years to live.“God gave me 25 extra years and I'm still going,” Hastings said.
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".
