On Thursday, Feb. 8, Allied Daily Newspapers of Washington and Washington Newspaper Publishers Association held 2018 Legislative Day at the Capitol Campus, Olympia. The state’s capitol basked in a glimmer of winter sunshine as reporters, journalists, editors, and publishers filled Senate Hearing Room 4 at the Cherberg Building. The day was important to independent journalism and reporting because legislators must understand that the people behind the newspapers are government watchdogs.
Lee Westwood lies just two shots behind first-round leader Brett Rumford after an impressive opening 66 at the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth. Defending champion Rumford raced to the turn in 29 en route to an opening 64 in the event at Lake Karrinyup Country Club, where the first three rounds are played as a regular strokeplay event before the field is reduced to 24 players on Sunday, with a six-hole matchplay format determining the winner.
The MCG pitch used for the Boxing Day Ashes Test has been rated poor by the International Cricket Council. The heavily-criticised surface produced a dull draw, with minimal pace and bounce on offer and a lack of deterioration thwarting England's attempts to force a first win of the series. Australia scored 327 and 263 for four declared - with Steve Smith and Mitchell Marsh comfortably batting out the last two sessions - and England making 491 in their only innings.
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".
