John D. English recently implored Boulder to " preserve our quality of life" by ensuring motorists can drive in Boulder unhindered by congestion. (Guest opinion, Daily Camera, Dec. 24). But people are not inextricably linked to cars, and ensuring that driving is convenient won't preserve quality of life. It will preserve underused parking lots, impenetrable superblocks, and frightening bike lanes along roads that feel like freeways. We can have more people and less traffic.
Support Permanently Affordable Co-ops at Planning Board On Thursday, November 2nd, the Boulder Housing Coalition will be asking Planning Board to allow us to house up to 16 people in our proposed co-op in South Boulder. We offered a bit of background on the project here. We need your help to ensure this co-op can house families,especially single parents.
On November 2nd, the Boulder Housing Coalition will be appearing before Boulder’s Planning Board, seeking a recommendation that city staff grant us additional occupancy in our proposed co-op at 4662 Ingram Court (near Moorhead & Table Mesa). In this post we will discuss the reasoning behind our request for additional occupancy, speak to the criteria Planning Board is supposed to use in evaluating our request, and address some questions that we have heard from the community regarding the project.
Rising property values help property owners and harm renters. Low & middle-income market rate renters experience housing insecurity as an ongoing source of stress and life instability in ways home owners and folks in permanently affordable housing don’t.
Sam suggesting that someone having been a renter in the past, even if they are now a home owner, would bring “the renter experience” to the board. But the incentives & experience are very, very different.
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".
