UPDATED July 18, 2017: Officials have lifted most of a June 30 health advisory for toxin levels on Lake Billy Chinook in Jefferson County. Reduced blue-green algae and toxin levels have been recorded in the lake's Deschutes River and Crooked River arms. The advisory continues in the Perry South Cove on the Metolius arm of the lake, which is 12 miles west of Madras.
In the past year, The Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and Sports Illustrated have reported informative tidbits suggesting that seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong used performance enhancing drugs. And now, Armstrong can say, "Et tu, Bicycling?" The monthly magazine that has chronicled Armstrong's victories and positive impact on cycling perhaps more thoroughly than any other, on Friday contributed to the cloud over the Texan in a big way.
As he saw the truck approaching a construction site flagger on U.S. 101, Kevin White remembers telling his wife he didn't think the truck would be able to stop. "And sure enough, he didn't." White's 2017 Ford F150 was one of four vehicles involved in a chain-reaction collision caused by a heaving helping of hagfish on Thursday, dumped from a swerving truck. One of the bins struck the first vehicle of the four, dousing it with slime.
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".
