At least she is in good company. As state Rep. Liz Pike, R-Camas, blames environmental regulations for killing manufacturing in this state, she calls to mind Winston Churchill, who might or might not have said, “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” And she calls to mind Mark Twain, who might or might not have said, “Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.”Not that Pike embodies the diplomacy of Churchill or the wit of Twain.
We know what you were thinking, how you reacted, what you said when you heard the news: “What, pray tell, is a ‘hipster’?”Admit it: That’s what you wondered last week when Vancouver — yes, our Vancouver — was deemed the “most hipster” city in the country. At least, that’s what Anne McEnerny-Ogle was thinking. “I had to figure out what a hipster was,” the 63-year-old mayor-elect said with a laugh. McEnerny-Ogle was not alone.
It is, unquestionably, the most powerful letter to the editor I have read during my time at The Columbian:It was 58 years ago. I was 4 years old when I first remember my father raping me. It was upstairs, in my pink bedroom. He said if I was quiet I could have some pie. He told me not to tell my mom because she would be mad and sad. I was scared and the attack hurt very much. That’s a hurt and a fear that has never really gone away. Even after 58 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 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".
