Six Pendleton High School students and two chaperones traveled to Japan earlier this month to visit Pendleton’s sister city of Minamisoma. They returned with a newfound respect for world’s great size— but also with the belief that people are more similar than different, filled with love and generosity. Below are a few of the students’ final reflections on the trip, in their own words:My experience in Japan was one to remember.
Kristen Dollarhide took the reins of Travel Pendleton on Monday. As director, she’ll steer the town’s growing tourism industry, expanding on a Pendleton tradition of hospitality that predates Round-Up. “Tourism in Umatilla County brings in $136 million a year in direct spending,” said Pat Beard, who left the helm of Travel Pendleton in July to manage the Pendleton Convention Center. “And Pendleton is the base of tourism in Umatilla County with the majority of restaurants, attractions and events.
Unlike Charlottesville, Pendleton has never had a monument to the Confederacy. But the town does have a few Confederate-resonant names and flags in its distant and not-so-distant past. The first is the city’s namesake, George H. Pendleton, an Ohio senator who opposed measures to ban slavery in the west during the 1850s. A member of the Democratic Party, Pendleton ran as George McClellan’s vice presidential candidate in an unsuccessful attempt to unseat President Abraham Lincoln in 1864.
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".
