Their stories are different, but baby Felix Shope, sisters Sabrina and Savannah Preston, little Maddie Davis and a dozen other children adopted Friday all share something special — a great gift. “You’re giving the greatest gift you can possibly give, a family, a home and a future,” Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers told new and second-time parents during a National Adoption Day event at the county courthouse. Sixteen children officially became part of “13 loving families,” Somers said.
At the Future of Flight Aviation Center, a visitor pauses at a display case where a model of a British Airways 747 (center) is exhibited next to models of rockets, spaceships and supersonic aircraft. By the end of this year, the 747 will no longer be flown by any U.S. airlines on passenger flights. (Dan Bates / The Herald)
The fall I turned 27, 1980, my mom and I took a trip. We spent a week in Ireland, took a ferry to Wales and flew back to Seattle from London.
A plastic muscle-man torso, masks of John F. Kennedy and Hillary Clinton, pirate hats, voodoo dolls, wedding goblets, graduation decorations, professional stage makeup and fake blood, it’s all up for grabs at Everett’s Party@Display & Costume store — but not for long. The costume and party-supply store at 5209 Evergreen Way will close for the last time Nov. 30.
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".
