This week’s dramatic change in weather may have brought rain to the lowlands, but temperatures overnight were cold enough aloft to leave snow in the upper elevations. The first snow of the season fell overnight Monday and was being reported Tuesday by ski areas getting ready for a new winter season. At 49 Degrees North ski area east of Chewelah, the resort website reported 1 inch of fresh snow at the summit. Schweitzer Mountain Resort also reported snow.
Centennial Trail users now have no excuse for missing their turn. The Friends of the Centennial Trail purchased 22 new directional signs that have been placed on the pavement at various junctions through the city of Spokane. The new signs, which include a Centennial Trail logotype, are made of a thermo-plastic material and tell trail users when they need to change directions. The signs are particularly useful in downtown Spokane where a web of trails intersect.
A cold front crossing the region on Thursday is going to kick up winds, drop temperatures by about six degrees and heighten fire danger. The front was expected to arrive overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning. Along with the weather change will come a chance of isolated thunderstorms in Eastern Washington and North Idaho. “This will be followed by gusty westerly winds Thursday,” forecasters said online on Wednesday. Southwest winds in Spokane could gust to 25 mph Thursday afternoon.
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".
