If you or your friends visit Oregon Parks and Recreation Department sites that have day-use parking fees more than five times during a year, this is a sweet deal. During December, the department is knocking $5 off the regular $30 price tag on an annual state parks pass. Just 25 state park recreation sites require the fee out of the 197 administered by the department, from lighthouses and viewpoints to scenic corridors and waysides.
This opportunity is more fins than feathers. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife made its first fall/winter delivery of hatchery brood rainbow trout the week of Nov. 13 to three Willamette Valley waters: 70 fish each to Cottage Grove Reservoir and Junction City Pond, and another 64 to St. Louis Ponds. These are real bruisers, some checking in at 15-plus pounds, with a large number in the 10-plus-pound range.
This is a tale of gold fever and a fungus-stomping terrier named Mick. Given the wet/cold-dry/warm weather cycle of late that is typical of Oregon fall, my long-time mushroom mentor, Phil McCorkle, called to say that it was an opportune time for a foray to look for golden chanterelles. And because Phil’s wife, Kathy, was out of town with some of her girlfriends on a church retreat, he decided to bring along Mick, his 12-year-old West Highland white terrier.
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".
