Cleaning up the downtown core by preventing the sale of fortified alcohol has not proven to be as successful as city officials hoped. Commander Jon Schuldt reported the statistics from the six-month Alcohol Impact Area ordinance did not show a decrease in calls for service. The ordinance created a six-month voluntary prohibition on selling fortified alcohol and malt liquors within the 0.6-square-mile area encompassing much of the downtown shopping core.
A hit and run collision on Sept. 9 on Interstate-405 South of state Route 167 left four injured. Witnesses reported a red-colored, four-door car change lanes and strike a Toyota Station wagon. The Toyota lost control and collided with the left side of a WSDOT jersey barrier. A GMC Yukon then T-boned into the Toyota, according to a press release. Three of the four occupants in the Toyota sustained non-life threatening injuries, including broken bones and lacerations.
A man suspected of starting multiple fires in Renton, Tukwila and around unincorporated King County was charged with four counts of second-degree arson on Sept. 8. A bail was set for $250,000 for 40-year-old James Goad, who reportedly set fires that caused an estimated total damage of $500,000, according to charging documents. Goad was booked into King County jail on Sept. 6. He is believed to be homeless.
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".
