LAKE STEVENS, Wash. – Are you ready to pay a toll to cross the U.S. Highway 2 Trestle in Snohomish County? State lawmakers instructed the Washington State Department of Transportation to study how to pay for a replacement of the trestle’s westbound lanes, and one part of the funding could come from tolling. “If traffic is bad I’ll go around it a different way,” said commuter Marty Person.
BELLINGHAM, Wash. – An entire family killed in their quiet, Whatcom County subdivision has been identified by investigators. The Bellingham Police Department said 45-year-old Kevin, 43-year-old Tanya and their 5-year-old son Benton Rowe were all found dead inside their own home on Monday. Investigators say the tragic act appears to be a case of murder-suicide, but detectives admit they may never know why it happened.
Cellphone video shows strong winds pushing high seas over a ferry’s bow and onto the car deck. So, makes that call to cancel or delay ferry routes during inclement weather? Incidents like the one that happened on the Friday Harbor to Anacortes run only happen a handful of times a year, according to WSF spokesperson Brian Mannion. While the weather in Puget Sound can get dicey this time of year, the routes farther north can sometimes get downright dangerous.
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".
