Oregon fires create haze and plumes as hundreds of firefighters work to contain the blazes. The Milli Fire is still burning in Central Oregon and provided dramatic views from the top of South Sister this past weekend. More than 300,000 acres of Oregon is in flames right now, including the Chetco Bar Fire on the southern Oregon coast. In Central Oregon, firefighters from around the country are burning brush and fallen trees to stop the wildfires.
For those at Symbiosis Gathering in Central Oregon, a 30,000-person music festival, Monday's eclipse will offer everything from a chance at self-transformation to making a tongue-in-cheek proposal. Ashley Lombardo, of Los Angeles, plans to use the eclipse to help propel her into a better future, she said. She's at a crossroads in life, she said, and the collective energy from others observing the eclipse will inspire her to change her life for the better.
As the moon shrouded the sun above the crowds at the Symbiosis Gathering, revealing its shimmering corona in the clear Central Oregon sky, people watched, whooped and wept. Tears falling from her eyes after totality, Effie Rawlings, 37, said the experience brought home to her how small humans are in the cosmos. "We are all a part of this huge system that is so much more than we are," she said.
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".
