The Portland City Council has approved a plan to connect the Portland Art Museum's two buildings. The plan is controversial, as pedestrian, bicycle, and disability rights advocates say it will block the public passageway between the buildings. The Portland Art Museum is split between two buildings on two separate blocks, with only an underground passage connecting them. It has been a challenge, especially for those with disabilities to navigate between the two buildings.
While many will spend this holiday weekend at home with family, there are thousands of people in the Portland metro area who have no home to celebrate in. A local initiative called “Home for the Holidays” is trying to change that for some, by giving 40 homeless families a home for the holidays and giving them an opportunity to get back on their feet. Wednesday was the first time Andrea Bunch and her son have had a place of their own to live in over four months.
A brand new music venue is coming to Portland’s Lloyd Center. Live Nation, which also operates the House of Blues, will be opening a new concert venue at Lloyd Center in the old Nordstrom building. Right now, the plan is going through its necessary approvals and is tentatively scheduled for an early 2020 opening. Mall manager Bob Dye said they hope to bring in some new stores and restaurants to complement the new music venue. “This part of town needs a little more foot traffic.
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".
