Multnomah County has had a "jail population emergency" twice this month—meaning more than 95 percent of the available beds were taken up by inmates—Sheriff Mike Reese told the board of commissioners this morning. He pushed for the board to pass a resolution allowing a committee to review people who could released to make room for others who are arrested.
SCOTUS: Grandparents Exempt From Travel Ban, But Not RefugeesThe latest on the travel ban from the Supreme Court is good news for grandparents, but bad news for refugees. At question was the exemptions that the high court outlined in a ruling allowing the travel ban to proceed as it considers whether the policy is constitutional. Last month, the justices decided to continue allowing travel from six Muslim-majority countries if the traveller had a "bona fide relationship" to someone in the US.
Win Tickets to See Chastity Belt at the Star Theater Friday, August 11! There's a lot to love about Seattle's Chastity Belt: Their band name. Their penchant for bucket hats and selfie sticks. Their wry sense of humor. But Julia Shapiro, Gretchen Grimm, Lydia Lund, and Annie Truscott's new album, I Used to Spend So Much Time Alone, cuts the irony for excellent post-punk driven that's by strong guitar melodies and vulnerable lyrics (on the title track, Shapiro sings, "I wanna be sincere").
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".
