While it seem like Seattle’s EMP Museum has always been an indelible fixture of Seattle skyline, it’s actually just turning 15 this month. And although it’s now an icon, that wasn’t founder Paul Allen’s original idea or intention. At first, the Microsoft co-founder was just looking for a place to house and display his ever-growing collection of Jimi Hendrix memorabilia, according to Jasen Emmons, EMP senior curator.
The help wanted sign is out at the Washington State Patrol, but there just aren’t enough qualified candidates answering the call. “We currently have over 100 vacancies that we’re looking to fill, our line troopers that you see out on the road” said Lt. Tim Coley, assistant commander of the WSP human resources division. The patrol is losing between five and eight troopers a month for a variety of reasons and far fewer are applying, let alone qualifying to replace them.
Millions of Americans who could be cured of a potentially deadly virus are being denied a miraculous new treatment because it can cost nearly $100,000. Both insurance carriers and drug companies alike are coming under fire for what critics say is their callous disregard for human life in the name of profits. Human life that could be saved from the potentially deadly virus, Hepatitis C.Tamara Neilson is one example. She has always been the picture of health.
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".
