OLYMPIA – A big day when it comes to gun issues in the legislature. It was standing room only on Monday as people packed a hearing in Olympia arguing for or against more gun control measures. Some of the bills talked about are nothing new but what is new is that several of them got heard by a senate committee for the first time in years now that the legislature is controlled by the Democrats. The side that wants more gun control came armed with a bus load of people.
OLYMPIA – It’s a fight against an epidemic that is killing more people than car accidents. Governor Inslee overall wants to invest $15 million into fighting the opioid epidemic. But the money won’t go towards ‘Just-say-no’ abstinence programs. Instead the plan expands access to medications. For one the proposal calls for increasing the supply of Naloxone without a prescription. Naloxone is a drug that reverses an opioid overdose.
ISSAQUAH – Cake and balloons are not something you expect to see at a UPS store but it was all for a local grandmother who turned 101 years old. “People are interested in this little old lady I don’t understand it,” Grandma Eileen said. All she wanted was one handwritten letter from a friend this year instead Eileen got a 100 letters from people across the country, strangers from as far away as Germany and Brazil. “It makes me feel so good my heart is pumping right now,” Grandma Eileen 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 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".
