A newly designed web portal is now providing Multnomah County crime victims with unprecedented access to information about criminals in the system. It's called Case Companion and it's said to be the first of its kind in the country. One Portland woman's powerful story of survival and journey through the criminal justice system helped shape how the website was formed. "It's my 11th bonus year," said Susan Walters. Walters was attacked at home by a stranger armed with a hammer.
Crazy images out of England showing a monster sized mound of grease clogging city sewer lines are prompting FOX 12 to investigate what conditions are like under the city of Portland. The 130 ton clog of congealed food, fats and wet wipes formed in a Victoria-era tunnel in London. It's called a fatberg and weighs nearly as much as a blue whale.
The opioid crisis is now considered a national public health emergency. In Multnomah County, health officials say the scope of this crisis is far reaching. County officials tell FOX 12 they're now tracking opioid overdoses in real time to get a better handle on the problem. Unity Center for Behavioral Health in north Portland provides 24-hour psychiatric care and support services for people experiencing a mental health crisis.
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".
