As home deals heat up in the South Sound, many buyers worry about whether they can win out in an increasingly competitive market. But another problem could lurk in the stacks of paper people sign when buying a home: The disclosure that the property once was contaminated by methamphetamine. Meth was a scourge in Pierce County more than a decade ago when the drug was at its peak.
A feng shui master helped the developer of a new hotel in downtown Tacoma select a groundbreaking date for the 22-story structure. The Marriott-branded hotel will be built by Yareton Investment and Management LLC. Its parent company, Shanghai Mintong Real Estate Co. Ltd., is based in China. The hotel’s vertical construction was supposed to begin by June 15, but the developer can’t start building until it owns the land, which can be conveyed only after several conditions by the city are met.
Turns out the dichroic glass design for the proposed Tacoma Convention Center Hotel was too polarizing. The city’s Landmarks and Preservation Commission approved a new design for the skyscraper last month, sans the decorative glass, which displays different colors depending on the lighting and the viewing angle. “There was a lingering concern” from the commission that the glass was too much of an unknown, said project manager Jason Lamb with Ankrom Moisan Architects.
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".
