Oregon is one step closer to complying with a 12-year-old federal law that governs the security of drivers’ licenses and other state identification cards. The Oregon Senate approved a bill Monday that would allow the Oregon DMV to issue licenses that meet federal approval. Republican Bill Hansell of Athena said the state would offer two kinds of IDs. “One being the standard cards that are available today.
The Oregon House approved a funding plan Monday for the Oregon Department of Veterans Affairs. It came over the objections of some Republicans, who said the proposal undercuts the will of voters. Last fall, nearly 84 percent of Oregon voters approved a measure to give a portion of state lottery proceeds to programs that support veterans. But with the influx of new dollars came the temptation to reduce general fund dollars flowing to the agency.
Oregon lawmakers have two weeks left to finish work in this year's legislative session. Major issues still remain on their agenda. On Tuesday, the House takes a key vote on a funding plan for kindergarten through grade-12 schools. Democrats delayed that vote for a week to allow more time to come up with a compromise on raising more revenue through a corporate tax hike. Those efforts fell apart, and it appears that lawmakers will go ahead and approve an $8.2 billion K-12 budget.
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".
