Boeing hasn't even officially decided to develop a new mid-sized airplane but for Washington state, it's already game on. The stakes are enormous - and this time, Washington's politicians mean to be ready. Boeing could spend up to $15 billion to design and manufacture the new jet if the Chicago company's board approves production.
By Andrew McIntosh Washington state has adopted a five-point strategy to strengthen its aerospace sector in the hopes that Boeing will build its new 797 jet here. Aerospace is the foundation of the state's economy and Boeing Commercial Airplanes is the cornerstone, Charles Knutson, an aide to Gov. Jay Inslee, wrote in a Jan. 23 memo obtained by the Business Journal.
The newest member of Boeing's popular single-aisle jet family, took off on its maiden flight Friday, launching what will be a comprehensive flight test program. Boeing's 737 Max 7 jet, took off from Renton Field, home of Boeing's sprawling 737 manufacturing plant, at 10:17 a.m. Pacific time. The plane appeared to take off without a hitch. The Max 7 will enter service in 2019, the company said. The first of the new jets rolled out of the Boeing factory last month.
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".
