"We don't track that." The Business Journal's newsroom heard that again and again during our six-month investigation into the Price of Homelessness, what we hoped would be a comprehensive tally of the amount the Puget Sound region is spending to respond to this humanitarian crisis. Turns out, tallying the true price is almost impossible. With the limited information that's available, we estimated the region is spending more than $1 billion a year. That figure is almost certainly underestimated.
Employment, education, entertainment, engagement, escape, enterprise and emancipation. Those are the "seven E's" that make a great city, according to Annise Parker, who served three terms as mayor of Houston. Parker spoke at the opening of the International Women's Forum conference in Houston, which I recently attended along with 900 other women, including many leaders in the business and nonprofit world.
Lillian Sherman frequently tells people she has the best job in Seattle. As executive director of the Pike Place Market Foundation since 2012, she led the group that raised $9 million to complete the MarketFront expansion project. The project marries well with her dedication to helping those in need.
I tend to agree, though would say the homelessness crisis is a symptom of the failure of many other systems (foster care, mental health care, justice system). Lack of affordable housing exacerbates the issue. https://t.co/kU6jFRSTQI
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".
