U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley, a Democrat from Oregon, is on the ground in Bangladesh this weekend to meet with some of the more than 500,000 refugees who have fled what the United Nations described as a “textbook ethnic cleansing” in their home country of Myanmar. “You have an assault by the Buddhist majority on the Rohingya Muslim minority,” Merkley said in a satellite interview with KGW before he left for the trip.
PORTLAND, Ore. -- Over the 2016-2017 school year, 22,541 public school students met the federal definition of homelessness, according to numbers the Oregon Department of Education released this week.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Leaders with the Portland Business Alliance, Downtown Clean & Safe and other agencies came together at Pioneer Place Thursday morning to draw holiday shoppers downtown this season. Their backdrop was a temporary pop-up shop in the corner space at Southwest 5th Avenue and Morrison Street, which now houses Dfrnt Pigeon, a brand designed by homeless teenagers through the nonprofit New Avenues for Youth. “We're giving them an opportunity to feel valued,” said designer Anna Coghill.
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".
