BEAVERTON, Ore. -- The Beaverton School District has launched an investigation after transphobic graffiti was found in a bathroom at the Arts & Communication Magnet Academy. “It’s not ideal,” said one school parent who wanted to remain anonymous. “We’re supposed to send the kids and trust they’ll be cared for and learn and come home.”The graffiti was discovered last week. One of the two messages suggests that transgender students are not welcome in the boy’s bathroom.
PORTLAND, Ore. --Three artists, who happen to be friends, are looking for their artwork that was stolen from an exhibit at the Water Avenue Commerce Center in Portland. Kelleher had been waiting months for the show that would feature his work and the work of two close friends. “We’ve been artists for 15 years but we’ve never had a show together,” he said. “This was our first show of our solo work all together.”The trio was excited. They hung the art Friday. The show opened Saturday.
PORTLAND, Ore. -- A Southwest Washington said he was assaulted and threatened by a man who ran him off the road and targeted him because of his race. “I’m scared,” said Armando, who asked that we not use his last name. “You don’t feel secure anywhere.”Armando was driving northbound on Interstate 5, just south of the Interstate Bridge, late Friday night when someone in a truck started tailgating him. Armando said it went on for several minutes before the driver side-swiped him. Armando pulled over.
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".
