Suzanne Stevens, editor of the Portland Business Journal, discusses the latest regional business news, including Oregon’s overflowing cannabis industry, Amazon’s expansion in Portland, Nike’s plan to use 100 percent renewable energy and new tariffs on solar panels. After a high profile death by suicide of a Washington State University quarterback, we discuss the larger questions of how much access college athletes have to mental health resources.
We talk to Oregon's junior U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley about the fast-moving budget deal to reverse the partial government shutdown. We’re in studio with the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality’s Peter Spendelow to talk about what processors and municipalities around the state are responding after China stopped accepting the state’s co-mingled recycling. We also talk with Recology Ashland’s Gary Blake about how they’re handing the changing market. And we’re taking listener calls live on the air.
Zach Urness with the Statesman Journal/USA Today joins us to talk about the fish passage improvements proposed for Detroit Dam in the next few years. Those plans would drain the lake for up to two years and have major impacts on recreation and tourism in the Detroit Lake area. Both Portland and Seattle tout themselves as green cities. But how much can a city actually do to reduce carbon emissions? KUOW reporter John Ryan has looked at Seattle’s successes and failures.
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".
