Portland, Ore.— An Oregon military impostor already serving time behind bars is facing new charges. Last week, a Multnomah County grand jury indicted Michele Bocci on three counts of theft by deception. The felony charges involve a Portland woman Bocci befriended last summer. The woman claims Bocci defrauded her out of more than $30,000.
PORTLAND, Ore.— Donors from Oregon and Washington have made late contributions to the Alabama special election Senate race during its frantic closing days. A review of Federal Election Commission records show residents in Oregon and Washington donated $21,000 since November 28. Of the 10 contributions made from late November to present, $11,600 went to Republican candidate Roy Moore. Democrat Doug Jones received $9,400 during that same period from residents in Oregon and Washington.
PORTLAND, Ore. — In 2010, the city of Portland tried something new. For the first time, city leaders decided to charge residents for leaf removal -- a service the city traditionally paid for. The program was intended to help supplement the budget during tough economic times and cover the cost of cleaning streets. Seven years later, the city’s still charging for leaf clean-up but nearly half of all eligible residents have opted out of the program.
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".
