Patricia Guthrie covers public and personal health and medical news as an independent journalist based in Seattle. She's known for her narrative stories following patients through experimental treatments and for her ability to raise awareness — and spark action — to improve community health. ...
After three decades playing the game that scores points with pegs and aims for skunks, Chuck Yursina of Oak Harbor finally has something to show for his favorite past time — a Mexican-style wrestling belt. At least that’s what he and his Whidbey Island cribbage-playing buddies dubbed his first-place prize won at last month’s Long Beach Invitational Cribbage Tournament.
WhidbeyHealth reached a deal with Siemens Healthineers to replace all its medical imaging equipment in the next few years with payments spread over a decade, CEO Geri Forbes announced Monday. “We’ll be replacing 100 percent of the radiology equipment throughout the system, at WhidbeyHealth Medical Center and all the clinics,” she said during a monthly meeting of the public health system.
Let’s be BoHo. Bohemian, that is, or more specifically, let’s start a new club called Island Bohemians Cafe. Although it may sound frivolous, this newest Whidbey arts entourage has serious intentions involving bringing order and inspiration to the often-solitary task of creativity.
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".
