Health officials in Multnomah County are watching a deadly outbreak of Hepatitis A unfold on the streets and, predominantly, in the homeless camps of San Diego. “There is elevated risk right now,” said Amy Sullivan, Communicable Disease Services Director for Multnomah County. That elevated risk came, said Sullivan, as the outbreak moved from San Diego County, where it’s infected roughly 500 people and killed 16, to Los Angeles, then to the Bay Area.
PORTLAND, Ore. -- A once-homeless man and the city of Portland are teaming up to create website that helps people qualify for apartment rentals. A rental record that has an eviction, financial issues or a person with past criminal history would benefit from using the site. The initial one-stop site was created by Tyrone Poole, who used to be homeless. It's called noappfee.com, with the app referring to application, not a phone app.
VANCOUVER, Wash. -- Made of flexible plastic and small enough to fit into a pocket, a cell phone case or even a bra, the 2017 Pocket Guide is written for anyone struggling on the streets of Vancouver. It’s especially aimed at those living on the streets for the first time. “It says trust your gut,” said Kaihtlin Kavanagh, reading from the Pocket Guide. She became part of that growing demographic two years ago after losing a job taping legal depositions.
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".
