OLYMPIA — Around 32,000 Washington state workers started receiving pink slips Thursday, a little more than a week before the state government could partially shut down July 1. But a partial government shutdown means more than just state layoffs. State parks would close. Sex offenders wouldn’t be closely monitored. More than one million Washingtonians could soon lose health insurance. Of course, we’ve gotten to this point before.
SEATTLE — Want to drink a crisp lager at Oktoberfest in Germany? Well, now you have a direct flight option. On Wednesday, Alaska Airlines’ partner Condor Airlines launched nonstop service between Sea-Tac Airport and Munich, Germany; meaning Washingtonians will have an easier time getting to one of the world’s best beer cities. Condor Airlines is one of six new international airlines added to Sea-Tac since 2016.
SEATTLE, Wa — You hear it nearly everyday. Overdoses death rates are the highest they’ve ever been. And they’re only going up. The comparisons are startling. Drug overdoses killed more Americans in one year than the entire Vietnam War. Overdoses are the leading cause of death for anyone under 50 years old. And more Americans are killed from drug overdoses than car crashes. This is certainly true in Western Washington.
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".
