SEATTLE — The sticker shock is getting real for the sugary drink tax in Seattle. This week stores and restaurants across the city have grappled with how to handle the new tax that went into effect Monday. That’s a cost that will likely get passed onto you — the consumer. It means a 12ounce can of Coke would cost 21 cents more. A liter will cost about 60 cents more. A whole case of soda is an extra $2.52. Sometimes seeing it in black and white makes you turn red.
SEATTLE — Legalization of recreational marijuana in California began on New Year’s Day and it is bringing pot, CBD oil, and baked edibles to a new market. But are they baked goods — or goods that get you baked? Jody Hall is happy either way. “I call our customer the ‘cannabis curious,’ and I call them the ‘Welcome Back Potters. '”And she knows of what she speaks. Her line of marijuana-infused edibles “Goodship” are a new brand from her other success: Cupcake Royale.
SEATTLE — A Seattle car dealership was hit by vandals in a strange drive-by attack caught on camera, and it’s not the first time. Wild West Cars on Lake City Way is cleaning up after the New Year’s Eve attack. It’s the sixth bout of vandalism they’ve dealt with in recent years. In this incident, $300,000 in damage was caused in just 30 seconds. A destructive chemical corroded more than a dozen of their cars. The chemical is generally used to peel material off airplanes down to the bare metal.
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".
