Win of the Season: Ten-Man Timbers See Off Red BullsToo many times this year, both at home and on the road, the Portland Timbers have played well and found ways not to win. Despite all their quality, when faced with formidable opposition, they'd repeatedly been caught short: not enough defense, not enough composure, and not enough grit. On Friday night, facing the New York Red Bulls at Providence Park, the Timbers had a chance to right that wrong. It was a game they needed to win.
From the outside, Project Object doesn’t look like much more than an unassuming storefront on NE Sandy, but sneak in through the courtyard—it’s shared by a number of artsy-crafty tenants, including Studio Mega, Leeward Surf, Pickathon, Kate Bingaman-Burt, and Guerrilla Development—and you’ll find the secret passageway to the store’s vibrant back-room studio space, which is like a dreamy minimalist Candy Land.
Get into the Weirdness of the Portland Poet’s Debut Novel, MammotherPortland poet and publisher Zachary Schomburg has assigned himself a potentially punishing task. On Saturday, August 19, he’ll read the entire text of his 350-page debut novel Mammother onstage, from sunrise to sunset. At various points throughout the marathon reading, Schomburg will be accompanied by about half a dozen ambient musicians.
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".
