In 1992, more than 1,700 independent scientists penned a letter titled, “World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity.” The letter urged humankind to consider its serious impact on the natural world. Twenty-five years later, more than 16,000 scientists have issued a second warning to humanity. Oregon Climate Change Research Institute director Philip Mote joins us.
We talk to the director of the Oregon Health Authority, Patrick Allen, about the agency’s overpayment of $75 million to health care providers and about how OHA is planning for the approximately 80,000 kids who will lose their health coverage if Congress doesn’t reauthorize the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Carmen Rubio, Scott Bruun and Christopher McKnight Nichols join us on the news roundtable to talk about some of the big stories of the week.
Author and Iraq War veteran Matthew Robinson joins us to talk about his first novel, “The Horse Latitudes.” He says he wanted to write a war story where veterans could see themselves in the narrative. Robinson’s novel unfolds through the perspective of various soldiers during a deployment in the Iraq war. As Veterans Day approaches, we hear from people who have served in the military about what the phrase “Thank you for your service” means to them.
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".
