Everyone is getting in on eclipse action, from pet stores to fishing charter boatsThe Aug. 21 total eclipse of the sun over a narrow ribbon of Oregon is forecast to bring traffic gridlock, packed hotels/motels and campgrounds, pumped dry gas stations and store shelves denuded of snacks and, ahem, beverages by tourists as the Beaver State’s population is predicted to swell by about 20 percent. In other words, a typical spring break weekend in Lincoln City, only over a larger swath of Oregon.
Made by a Lincoln City man, Crab Max traps are the popular choice by locals, but even the best trap won't help if all you can pull in are ladies. TAFT — It was, in fishing parlance, a whopper. On second thought, make that crabbing parlance. Broad of beam with drum-tight, meat-filled legs and chunky claws, the Dungeness in the fishing-pole trap was one of the largest I’d reeled in for several years.
Mystery man who can “lift the max” at the gym reminds me of some fish tales. Granted, I go to the Salem Family YMCA during what can best be described as “off-peak” hours, joining a handful of regulars and drop-ins for a pre-dawn yawn-fest when the door opens at 5 a.m.It’s a habit that started more than two decades ago when you could get in a quick workout and a shower and be across the alley between the Y and the then-Statesman Journal office downtown by around 6 a.m.
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".
