SPOKANE, Wash. - A Spokane Valley woman faces hate crime charges for allegedly harassing her neighbors, calling them terrorists. Spokane County deputies arrested 68-year old Shalisha Israel Tuesday night after what deputies describe as weeks of harassment of her Middle Eastern neighbors. The neighbors say Israel, who is white, has called them racial slurs and harassed them for weeks, but that they didn't report it to police and tried to ignore it.
SPOKANE, Wash. - There's nothing like a superhero costume to bring smiles to the faces of young children. Tuesday, Derek Deis and I had the incredible honor of dressing up and delivering smiles to the patients at Sacred Heart Children's Hospital. It's part of Superhero Day, presented by Children's Miracle Network. The organization raises money that funds critical treatment and charitable care, with donations that stay right here in Spokane.
SPOKANE, Wash. - One of the most bizarre parades you'll see this 4th of July did not involve patriotic hats and music. Instead, it was two llamas following a pickup truck to return them to their home in Spokane's Vinegar Flats neighborhood. Sassy and Henry apparently were spooked when flames chewed through their owner's shed and yard Monday night. While neighbors ran to help, Sassy and Henry took off, taking up temporary residence in Jennifer Campo and Emmett Morris's yard.
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".
