OLYMPIA, Wash. — Nearly half of Americans in their 40s and 50s have both a parent age 65 or older — and an adult child — and those middle-aged couples often find themselves sandwiched in the middle, caring for both their kids and their elder parents, financially and physically. If you fall into this category, you’re not alone. It’s called “The Sandwich Generation” and it’s playing out in homes all around the country.
RENTON, Wash. — The heartbroken fiance of the 33-year-old Renton woman killed when a tree fell in Monday’s storm and crushed her car is trying to cope with the tragedy and help their 4-year-old daughter who doesn’t understand why her mother is not with them. “She misses her mom. She’s asking where her mom is,” Norman said Tuesday of the little girl named Amrycle.
SEATTLE — It’s not easy getting around the Puget Sound region on a typical day with our congested roadways, so throw in any kind of inconvenient weather into the mix, and it can be a recipe for traffic delays and major backups. Expectations of gridlock have many drivers around the Pacific Northwest preparing for the first fall storm of 2017. “I gotta leave earlier, the freeway is gonna be a mess, I take 509 so that means it’s gonna be backed up,” says Tom Daves of Seattle.
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".
