Bill McKibben, known primarily as an environmentalist who writes for the layman, never lets his politics sour what is, at heart, a romp. The author of “Radio Free Vermont” will appear at Elliott Bay Book Co. on Monday, Nov. 20. Few audiences will read Bill McKibben’s latest book with as much wry appreciation as Seattleites.
The review could make King County the first jurisdiction in the nation to approach juvenile crime through a public-health lens. Seeking to address the causes behind youth crime, King County Executive Dow Constantine on Thursday directed a review of Juvenile Detention Services to focus on a trauma-informed approach for kids being held before trial, rather than punishment alone. “Youth crime is a sign of ill health in the community,” said Seattle’s interim Mayor Tim Burgess, endorsing the move.
The latest summary of results from Seattle schools shows that performance gaps between white students and others are wider than ever. Educators often say that it’s impossible to fix a problem until you measure it and understand the scope. Seattle Public Schools — by tracking everything from test scores to students’ feelings — has that part down. But results released last week underscore the fact that schools need to do much more than measure.
Interesting timing. Just as Seattle begins to tackle youth crime as a 'public health' problem, the feds discourage using exactly those words -- along with any mention of the Obama admin. Hmmm. https://t.co/8Fbj4Rv9Jx
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".
