Mary and Tim Reber never know who might show up at the door of the Rucker Hill home they bought in 2014. So far, visitors have included director David Lynch, FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper and a steady stream of “Peaks Geeks” from all over the world. What’s up with that? The Rebers live in the “Twin Peaks” home of fictional murdered homecoming queen Laura Palmer in the cult classic show. Their move into the home at 708 33rd St. three years ago created a new chapter in life for the couple.
Whales: “Gray Whales of Puget Sound” talk by Cindy Hansen, 7 p.m. Nov. 15, Camano Island County Multipurpose Center, 141 N. East Camano Drive. Hansen, education and events coordinator with Orca Network, will discuss the biology and behavior of gray whales and their role in the ecosystem. Learn about their history with humankind, from the whaling days to their current “friendly” behavior. The Camano Wildlife Habitat Project hosts public presentations the third Wednesday of the month.
Home shows have branched out from the usual army of appliances, free yardsticks and great deals on gutters. These are also a marketplace of vendors peddling everything from ostrich jerky to stun guns. What stunned me at the recent show at Xfinity Arena was a booth with a colorful display of fruits and nuts that were pretty enough to wear. It was in the form of earrings, bracelets and necklaces. What’s up with that? Designer Viviana Rizo transforms orange peels and pistachio shells into chic jewelry.
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".
