Oregon's economy is strong, which means unemployment is low, and you'd be hard-pressed to find anybody to complain about those facts. But every swing in the pendulum has its winners and losers, and you could argue that Oregon's community colleges fall in the latter category this time around. Enrollment at Oregon community colleges fell to 283,854 in the 2016-17 school year, a 24 percent decline from the state's prior peak of 374,042 in the 2009-10 school year.
Replacing the I-5 Bridge is a priority of yours. What has to happen to make it work now? We screwed up big time when our Washington legislature dumped a funding piece back in 2013. But in those five years, the city of Vancouver alone has 10,000 new people that moved in and they're wondering what's going on with this I-5 congestion. So it goes back to having a little education about what that was all about and who are the decision makers on this project.
It's the kind of story you'd hear out of a quaint small town in the American heartland: the middle-school math teacher with a mean cobbler recipe rises through the political ranks to become mayor. Except in the case of Anne McEnerny-Ogle, she isn't leading some anonymous small town. McEnerny-Ogle in November was elected mayor of Vancouver, the fourth-largest city in Washington and a significant contributor to the Portland metro area economy.
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".
