It appears we still can’t put the cell phones down when we get behind the wheel. Despite the new state law outlawing drivers from even holding a phone while behind the wheel, Washington State Patrol stats show plenty of people are doing just that. The new law took effect in July. Between July 23 and November 21, more than 5,000 drivers have been stopped for using electric devices while driving. But there is something else in your car that could be distracting you, and it’s not part of that new law.
SEATTLE — Many of us woke up to some snowfall Friday morning in Western Washington. The first stretch of wintry weather swept late Thursday — bringing several inches of snow to the mountains, and a smattering of snow across much of Puget Sound. Q13 News viewers shared photos and video of snow in Bellingham, Port Orchard, Port Angeles, Maple Falls and more! The National Weather Service in Seattle issued a Wind Advisory until noon Friday for San Juan County and Western Whatcom County.
He may come from the comics books. But Thor’s latest movie looks more like a kids coloring book, with splashes of intergalactic sherbet stretching to every corner of the page, I mean screen. Marvel went into the God of Thunder’s third movie with comedy on its mind. The first two flicks featuring the famous Norse gave us some light moments in a fish-out-of-water sense, but were, for the most part, straight ahead action packed heroics.
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".
