OLYMPIA — Lawmakers are scrambling to help endangered killer whales in the Puget Sound. There are dozens of proposed bills in the 2018 Legislative session that relate to orcas and their favorite food, salmon. One state Democrat thinks he has a plan to solve what many consider to be the Southern Resident killer whales’ biggest threat: the dwindling Chinook salmon population.
TACOMA, Wash. — Pierce County sheriff’s detectives didn’t mince words when it came to the condition of the home where deputy Brandon McCartney was shot and killed. “This was a drug house,” Pierce County Sheriff’s Office Det. Ed Troyer said. “There were no beds in that house. Feces on the floor – human – those squalor conditions that nobody should live in.”Troyer also made clear who the two victims, the “only two victims” outside of the killed deputy, were in the home.
UNION GAP, Wash. — A major landslide feared at Rattlesnake Ridge near Yakima is a “different beast” than most landslides we see in Washington, according to state geologists. The 8-million tons of dirt sitting above Interstate 82 near the Yakima River is moving about 2.5 inches a day. That’s about a foot-and-a-half a week. Or, quite a bit slower than most Washington landslides we’ve seen.

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".
