A-A+ Bend attorney William Wardlow tried to buy $2,000 in bitcoin through the trading platform Coinbase.com on Oct. 11 but was met with a demand that he upload a driver’s license and photograph of himself. The photo identification was more than Wardlow is willing to share, so he never completed the transaction, though he says Coinbase had sent him a message telling him he was good to go. One bitcoin was worth $4,829.22 at that time, according to a lawsuit Wardlow filed with Deschutes County...
A-A+ Five Talent Software is opening a Portland office to overcome a labor shortage in Bend, which CEO Preston Callicott said has limited the firm’s growth over the past year. “We have a very rich project pipeline,” he said of Five Talent, which develops software for clients in a wide variety of industries. But the firm doesn’t accept all the work that’s available because it can’t hire enough software developers, he said. Five Talent, which employs about two dozen people at its 1001 Emkay...
A-A+ First Interstate Bank is trying to collect on nearly $3 million in aircraft loans, which were made under a short-lived program launched by the former Bank of the Cascades. The former Bend bank, which First Interstate acquired last year, had already discontinued aviation lending before the merger was complete, First Interstate CEO Kevin Riley said. “The individual who started that business for Bank of the Cascades passed away,” Riley said. “We have not invested in moving that business...
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".
