The usual calm of a Friday afternoon on Vancouver’s Main Street was disrupted by the thumping of bass drums and the squealing voices of children shouting “Firetruck, firetruck, firetruck!”It was time, once again, for the annual Paddy Hough Parade. Students from nearby Hough Elementary School and community organizations dressed in their finest — or at least their greenest — and marched down Main Street in a show of St. Patrick’s Day pride.
“When will it be time for the Battle Ground Public Schools to be divided into smaller districts?”The Battle Ground school district is, in some ways, as divided as its name implies. Battle Ground Public Schools is Clark County’s largest geographical school district, spreading both in scale and culture from suburban Brush Prairie to rural Amboy and Yacolt.
Area school districts are preparing for planned student walkouts that will touch campuses across the nation on Wednesday. One month after a gunman opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., students at some high schools in Vancouver and surrounding cities plan to leave class at 10 a.m. for 17 minutes — one minute for each of the victims in last month’s shooting.
Me, an intellectual buying a phone a few weeks ago: “You know, I am a journalist, so I really need a phone that can do it all since I’m ALWAYS in the field blah blah blah.”
Me, in reality: “LOOK AT HOW GOOD MY CAT PICTURES ARE IN PORTRAIT MODE.”
The Daily Evergreen received an award for general news reporting for its series on alcohol consumption on campus, "Cougs under the influence." I oversaw production of the series as editor-in-chief and contributed stories to the package.
Myself and a small team of student journalists received a second place award for in-depth reporting for our look into marijuana legalization and how it would affect the Washington State University and University of Idaho communities.
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".
