When the solar eclipse starts Monday morning, some of the first images of it likely will be captured by students from Corvallis and Albany.A team of students from Oregon State University and Linn-Benton Community College will be at sea early in the morning on OSU’s research vessel, the Pacific Storm, to launch an LBCC student-built weather balloon that is intended to capture and live broadcast images and video of the moon’s shadow as it makes landfall.
How did you spend your summer vacation?For many high school students the answer might be a summer job, a family vacation, Snapchatting their friends or witnessing the celestial majesty of the eclipse visitors who are lined up at local gas stations.But Rachel Murray and Erika Salazar can say they spent part of their summer vacation studying guinea pig chlamydia and learning to do DNA testing.
Thursday morning the Gazette-Times began to hear reports of stations running low on fuel, as emergency planners had warned might happen with the massive influx of visitors to the mid-valley for the eclipse.Weâ€™ll keep a list here of what we hear from readers about fuel levels at mid-valley stations: -The Jacksons at Kings and Circle Boulevards in Corvallis: As of 11 a.m. fuel levels were reportedly low, but the station was expecting a tanker truck to arrive early Thursday afternoon.
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".
