There have been at least 69 wrong-way crashes in Arizona this year. Sixty-nine. That number is alarmingly high, especially in a state that has seemingly taken considerable measures to prevent the likelihood of wrong-way drivers. But the recent wave of fatal wrong way crashes in and around Phoenix has prompted a more immediate response to help fix the problem.
In Arizona, private prisons have been used by the state since the mid 1990s. But in May, the City of Mesa, a southeastern suburb of Phoenix, passed a measure to begin a three-year contract with the private prison company CoreCivic, a company marred in controversy and lawsuits across the country, becoming the first major Arizona city to use private prisons. Private prisons, or for-profit prisons, are privately owned facilities on government contract to house inmates.
The break for most of the day featured Ben King, Time Roe, Songenzo Jim, Robin Carpenter, Nicola Tonvitchii and Luis Lemas. Jim fell behind and was reabsorbed by the peloton, and Gregory Daniel of Axeon Racing came surging up to join the leaders, who furthered their advantage on the peloton by 1:55 before the final sprint of the day.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
