Current Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O'Toole will step down at the end of the year, according to a news release sent by the office of Mayor Jenny Durkan. Deputy Chief Carmen Best will be named Interim Chief as of January 1, 2018. Earlier this year O'Toole announced she had been nominated for a new job in Ireland. The position would oversee Ireland's Commission on the Future of Policing. It is not known if O'Toole's resignation is related to this position.
When you think of Youth Services at the library, you might envision the new interactive play areas, the mini-storefront center, or the helpful librarians with great answers and lots of programs. But we serve all over the city, not just in the library. Did you know that we’ve offered 200 youth programs since we opened in our new facility this year and 68 of them were outside of the library?
If you haven’t discovered it already, the Milton Public Library is a wonderfully vibrant community center, filled with educational and eclectic workshops, resources, and events. This coming fall is no different. Fall programming starts with the Gather ‘Round Recipe Club where cooking enthusiasts meet to share and sample their favorite cuisines. Each meeting offers a new theme for a dish to share. You can also try Essential Oils for Beginners, a class taught by Basics Co-op Staff.
@TravisMayfield@natasnw It's not about winning awards, it's about solid reporting, good work and the day-to-day creativity that makes you stand out. After running into the politics at KOMO, I never enter. Contests do not define our news skills. You are always a winner!
@TonyaMosley@ColleenKIROFM It's more efficient many times if employees bag the groceries so that the customer can deal with the payment of the groceries and all the little steps in-between. I asked at Trader Joe's and QFC and PCC and got the same answer. It's not your job.
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".
