By: Susannah Elliott Photo: Adam Cairns | Dispatch This blog has noted dozens of times in recent years that visiting writers from national publications have returned to their newsrooms to write gushing, but incredulous, stories about Columbus. You know, the 15th-largest U.S. city that most Americans still seem to dismiss as flyover country.
Ever wondered what happens to the leaves, grass clippings, twigs and other green waste you set on the curb for collection? If you live in Columbus, it eventually may end up right back in your yard -- likely in the garden, as mulch, soil or compost.

What are the two black tubes sticking out of the Olentangy River by Spring Street? Are they still being used? - Robert Cornell, Hilliard There's a section of Nationwide Boulevard that had a former life as Dublin Avenue, and it stretched all the way across the Olentangy River.
It's a freezing morning, and you look out at your car from inside a toasty house, dreading having to grip a chilly steering wheel while your breath fogs up the windows. Would it be all right to turn on the ignition to warm up the interior - and maybe melt some ice on the windshield - and finish up your morning routine from the cozy confines of home?
If you overestimated how many kids would knock on your door for Halloween treats this year, there are plenty of ways to put that extra candy to good use - and that doesn't mean settling on the couch with a bag of fun-sized Snickers.
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
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".
