It has happened too many times this summer: Markus Ramos wakes up in the morning and begins to check the forecast. What is the tide schedule? When are the swells? When can he run out of his house to relax on the beach before training? And too many times, Ramos realizes he is more than 2,600 miles from his home in Ewa Beach, Hawaii, on the south side of Oahu. Hunter Breault can relate, having lived less than 10 minutes away from Ramos, in Kapolei.
The expectant mother was in labor. Yet she refused to leave the Crook County Fairgrounds, not until the final horse races of the Crooked River Roundup were complete. She stayed for as long as she could. Not long after, some 40 years ago, a baby boy — middle name: Race — was born in the fairgrounds parking lot. Dean Noyes insists that the story is true, and he loves retelling it.
The three Bend high schools are in a game of Plinko that no contestant on “The Price is Right” would want to play. With only two meetings left for the Oregon School Activities Association classification and districting committee, which is charged with configuring the high school sports landscape for the 2018-22 time block, Bend High, Mountain View and Summit are still without a solidified conference. The latest proposal, however, may be the most telling.
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".
