Fran Bittakis stood in front of a small crowd of volunteers Saturday morning in Northeast Portland and asked if they wanted to shout into the air for a few seconds. Just to let off some steam. Soon, the group of two dozen or so gathered at the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art wailed together with a roar that tapered off only to be replaced by whoops and cheers. It was noon. And the doors were about to open to the one-day women's marketplace they'd been working on since mid-October.
After a one-year hiatus, Dave Matthews Band announced they're hitting the road this summer and continuing a longstanding Labor Day concert series at The Gorge Amphitheater. And just before that, they'll headline an Aug. 26 show at the Les Schwab Amphitheater in Bend. Tickets for the 2018 tour go on sale on Feb. 2, although the pre-sale is already live for members of the band's fan club. Prices for the Bend show are set at $95, not including fees.
Demonstrators descended on this agitator who was shouting Bible verses at the crowd at the #metoo rally. Had his book kicked away when he dropped it, pushed by a few people as he walked up Morrison. https://t.co/QSoq3vfigY
.@killendave and I have wrapped up at the impeachment march and we just moved to Pioneer Courthouse Square, where sexual assault survivors are speaking about their experiences at the #metoo rally. https://t.co/7v15e6xPbV
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".
