Top officials from the Oregon Health Authority and FamilyCare Health testified Monday that they intend to build a better working relationship after years of legal disputes and the recent revelation of a communications strategy aimed at discrediting the nonprofit coordinated care organization. "We are now dealing, in this hearing, with the past," said Jeff Heatherington, president and CEO of FamilyCare Health. "We, frankly, look forward to a better future with the OHA."
Part of a referendum that would undo a 0.7 percent tax increase on larger Oregon hospitals is facing the beginnings of a legal battle about wording and intent between the petitioners and the state's lawyers. The problem, according Legislative Counsel Dexter Johnson, is that the referendum fails to identify both sections in the bill where the 0.7 percent tax increase is mentioned.
Oregonians will receive a tax refund next year thanks to an unexpectedly strong economy bolstered by historic tax revenue, the Office of Economic Analysis said Wednesday. The state's general fund revenue exceeded projections by 2.7 percent, triggering a $464 million payout to taxpayers at an average of $227 per person. Based on an individual's adjusted gross income, the rebates range from $5 to $4,900, with a median at $89.
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".
