NCW — Last week, I got some really nice responses to my column, "Planning for a future with Alzheimer’s." Then this week, I got two not-so-flattering responses to a news story I wrote, reporting that 89 local doctors had signed a guest opinion piece saying that — in their opinion — repealing the Affordable Care Act will hurt North Central Washington. First, I received an email from a gentleman who called my article “fake news,” and asked, “Why don’t you… Stay with the story.
OMAK — Police on Thursday arrested a second man on suspicion of second-degree murder in the death of Joseph Shawl, a 46-year-old Omak man who was beaten unconscious and thrown into the Okanogan River last month. Another man — 55-year-old Javier Sanchez, of Pateros — is still missing. On Thursday, the Okanogan County Sheriff’s Office searched the river for the third time since Shawl’s body was recovered, following up on reports that he, too, was beaten and tossed into the… Stay with the story.
PATEROS — The Pateros Community Resource Center will offer free seminars monthly from now through October, one explaining Medicare, and the other delving into health care options, coverage and other issues that affect health insurance. The two separate presentations, each followed by a question-and-answer period, will be offered once a month at the resource center, 169 Pateros Mall, Suite A, in Pateros.
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".
