The debate over the future of KeyArena brings up the issue of another Seattle relic: the monorail. A proposed amendment to the Memorandum of Understanding between the city and Oak View Group asked to restrict the use of the $40 million transportation fund by prohibiting it from being used for any payment for capital improvements for the monorail.
The committee that will authorize the mayor of Seattle to execute the Memorandum of Understand between the city and Oak View Investment Group for the potential redevelopment of KeyArena may vote as early as Thursday. The Select Committee on Civic Arenas is scheduled to discuss and vote on the MOU, according to a memo from the director of central staff. Included in the memo is the financial incentive of securing NHL and NBA teams.
The anti-Seahawks movement stemming from the decision by some players to kneel or stay seated during the National Anthem may be confined to a vocal minority, or people living outside of the Greater Seattle area. Bob Condotta with The Seattle Times reports television ratings for Seahawks games in the Seattle-Tacoma region remain near those of 2013, when the team won the Super Bowl. According to Condotta, there was an average rating of 38.6 during the 2013 season.
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".
