OLYMPIA, Wash. — The weeks of protests, threats, and closures of Evergreen State College in recent weeks became a headline and talking point across the country. They escalated following students speaking out and disrupting courses over a professor unwilling to support a yearly walkout over racial discrimination and awareness.
SEATTLE — The question of racial bias with police is a complicated and passionate one. But is there actual evidence? Some researchers at Stanford University want to put aside emotions and feelings. So maybe cold, dispassionate numbers can help — even if the takeaway is jarring. “One pattern we find consistently across the country is that black and Hispanic drivers are searched more often, ticketed more often, and arrested more often than white drivers,” said Sharad Goel.
SEATTLE — It’s the name we know and the flavor we’re used to, but Ivar’s Seafood is out at Sea-Tac International Airport. The airport outpost of the chain has been there since 2005. Now the lease is up and other bidders won out, which is why the artfully crafted public relations machine of Bob Donegan was out at the Port of Seattle headquarters Tuesday afternoon. “We want to keep Ivar’s at Sea-Tac,” Donegan said, flanked by over a dozen Ivar’s workers in red shirts and the iconic clam mascot.
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".
