Rep. Ken Helm has heard the talk that if Measure 101 fails, cap and trade will be off the table this year in the Legislature. First, the Beaverton Democrat rejects the idea that the health care funding referendum might fail. But if it somehow does? "I'm receiving tremendous support from the speaker and majority leader and it's full steam ahead on our bill," Helm said. "Measure 101 will not prevent us from taking a hard look at how we meet the state's stated greenhouse gas emissions goals."
President Donald Trump has approved tariffs on solar cells and modules imported into the U.S. in what appears to be at least a partial victory for embattled Hillsboro manufacturer SolarWorld Americas Inc. According to a fact sheet posted by the U.S. Trade Representative, Trump approved a tariff of 30 percent in the first year of a four-year regimen, declining by 5 percentage points in each of the subsequent three years.
With a big wind power deal in Texas added to earlier efforts, Nike said Thursday that it will hit 100 percent renewables for its North American operations and move more than halfway toward a goal of greening its global energy use by the end of the 2025 fiscal year. But what's it mean when a company says it's sourcing 100 percent renewable energy?
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".
