A 23-year-old man died soon after running into traffic and being hit by a truck Monday night. Portland police arrested the driver of the truck, Eric Sebastian Oman, for allegedly driving under the influence of intoxicants. Oman, 55, was released from jail without any bail amount. The accident happened around 10:20 p.m. near Southeast 122nd Avenue and Woodward Place. Friends of the victim told investigators the young man had been acting in a strange and paranoid way right before the crash.
Daniel Lee Wescott, 57, died after hitting a parked car on Southeast 96th Avenue, the Portland Police Bureau announced Tuesday. Police said that Wescott, who is from Southeast Portland, was going fast on Southeast 96th Avenue, swerving and spinning the tires of his 2011 Studebaker kit truck before the accident. Right before the crash, he made a sweeping turn and hit a parked 1980 Volvo, police said. Wescott was ejected and died. His passenger, a 44-year-old woman, suffered an ankle injury.
While she was one of hundreds who ran across the marathon finish line July 4 at Sauvie Island, Vicki Classen, 62, was probably one of very few who has run across almost 100 such finish lines. Classen, with "Gary's Girl" written on her bib, had just finished her 99th marathon in 30 years.
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".
