The change of season can pose some serious challenges for local homeless people. As the days get darker and the temperatures get colder, one Portland man is working to make life a little brighter for those in need. Nestled underneath the Hawthorne Bridge in downtown Portland every Sunday, hundreds gather to share a meal. Many are good friends, and some perfect strangers. Bruce Arnold is one of the leaders of Home PDX, and even though he's a pastor, he says it's not about church.
It's a dish served to people who are serving time - a food that's sometimes used as a form of punishment. Many describe what's known as the nutraloaf as a flavorless, spongy blob. It's designed to be bland, and it's served up to inmates who act out behind bars. Behind the armed deputies and past the bulletproof glass at the Clark County Jail, nutraloaf is a disciplinary tool that has cooked up controversy nationwide for decades, and it's a tool Commander Michael Anderson knows all about.
An Oregon-born sailor in the U.S. Navy remains in the hospital in Virginia after a hit-and-run crash almost a month ago. Dakota Hollingsworth of Gladstone has already undergone 5 surgeries, and his mom Cara told FOX 12 there more are more scheduled. The 22-year-old sailor was riding his motorcycle on his way to work on the USS Harry Truman in Virginia Beach on March 29 when he was hit by an SUV, which then took off from the scene.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
