Floyd Jones was an unusual multimillionaire in our 1 percent times. He and his late wife, Delores, were giving away their fortune. Mr. Jones, a successful Seattle stockbroker, died Jan. 5 at age 90. He was an unusual multimillionaire stockbroker for our gilded 1 percent times. No photos of Floyd Jones exist of some chichi setting on his yacht, because there was no yacht. But there are photos, and memories, of Mr. Jones at the Stanwood Camano YMCA he helped fund with $10 million.
Three Seattle City Light customers went to the mat with the utility over their astoundingly high bills. The answers they got left them a bit less than happy. It can get problematic, if you’re a public utility — say, Seattle City Light — and find yourself dealing with irate customers who don’t get fazed easily.
The times we live in. People Saturday went to a two-hour session called “Intervention Bystander Training.” Some played the role of harasser, others played the bystander trying to do the right thing — and be safe. It’s tough to understand why anyone would get all mouthed-up with Fatima Sheikh, 20, of Redmond, a junior majoring in education at the University of Washington, one of three kids in the family, dad a techie, mom staying at home. Spend a few minutes with her.
63 residents, 100 chickens, 8 dogs. The people at the bottom of a quarry near Yakima that's sliding, if slowly, have moved to motels. The chickens and dogs need temp homes. Oso 2014 looms over it all. My story: https://t.co/OvY6DW4dEthttps://t.co/y53AwI0nvt
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".
