Sunday could be hottest day Seattle has seen all year Break out the SPF 50 and the beach towels, our summer weekend has arrived By Daniel DeMay, SeattlePI Updated 3:56 pm, Wednesday, June 21, 2017 Photo: JORDAN STEAD, SEATTLEPI.COM Yes, it's another photo of Alki Beach, a place that will no doubt be packed this weekend as the temps climb into the 80s and possibly even the 90s.
As Seattle grows, a look at where traffic has become unbearableLooking around Seattle's crowded freeways, it's easy to say traffic has gotten worse in the last five or ten years. And that's mostly true. Studies that measure congestion have found Seattle's highways getting worse in the last five years for certain. And the amount of traffic in many places is definitely up, but that's not the whole story.
Roundabout madness. Whether you call it a roundabout or a traffic circle, this traffic management design can help reduce t-bone collisions at busy intersections, while also keeping traffic moving at a relatively speedy pace. But these prove too complicated for Seattle drivers, who wait patiently for an invitation to enter, only to realize too late they are in the wrong lane for their exit and cross other traffic to get out.
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".
