There are few spans as stately as a covered bridge. In America, we tend to associate the wooden bridges with states back east, places like Pennsylvania and Vermont – which are indeed full of them – but here in Oregon we have our fair share as well. It’s been said that Oregon has more covered bridges than any other western state, but it’s not easy to nail down a solid number.
Forests in Oregon are owned and managed by a dizzying array of public and private entities, making it hard to get a firm grasp on who owns what land and for what purpose. Is this U.S. Forest Service land or does Weyerhauser run it? Is it managed timberland or untouched wilderness? One designation that can easily trip up folks in Oregon is the state forest, or “working forests” that have come into state hands in a variety of ways.
As the Eagle Creek Fire continued to burn, two men hiked into the active fire area, flew a drone over a smoking patch of trees, recorded themselves doing all of it and uploaded the video to YouTube. That's a no-no. Federal, state and local agencies are still working to contain the fire, and authorities said the Saturday drone flight violated the Federal Aviation Administration's ban on drones around wildfires.
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".
