PORTLAND, Ore. — Freightliner has tested self-driving cars or trucks on Oregon highways, KGW has learned. The information was discovered in response to a public records request sent to the state under the Oregon Open Records law. The records obtained by KGW also reveal that Intel planned to test a self-driving car, a black Range Rover, on Highway 26 between Brookwood Parkway and Glencoe Road, last July. The test was scheduled twice but according to a spokeswoman did not actually take place.
CASCADE LOCKS, Ore. -- In the Columbia River Gorge town of Cascade Locks, the driver of a grey sedan hesitates, as we all do, before pulling on to the main street from a parking lot. But the pause comes only from habit. There is no one else on the road. Cascade Locks is still under level 3 evacuation, threatened by the Eagle Creek Fire, the streets mostly deserted. With Interstate 84 still closed, there are no tourists either. It's hammering local businesses.
CASCADE LOCKS, Ore. -- Oregon’s Department of Transportation says Interstate 84 will be closed at least through the weekend between Troutdale and Hood River. The interstate is not littered with trees and boulders, at least not the stretch from Troutdale to Cascade Locks. Along the side of the road, there is nothing left to hold the soil or rocks that could roll down into the road.
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".
