In a good year, Washington is home to 15 different species of owls, the most of any state. Thanks to an ocean out west, a dry interior out east, and an intervening mountain range that carves out sub-climates on top of peaks and inside valleys, Washington is an ecological sweet spot. More climates, more species. Nobody knows North American owls better than Paul Bannick, who traverses the continent to track them down.
Bannick camps, hikes and kayaks whenever he can. And wherever he’s at, there’s an owl. “Every place I go, I am serenaded at night as I’m cooking dinner or setting up a tent by a different kind of owl,” he says. “Whether it be desert, forest, shrub-steppe, grassland, arctic tundra—there’s an owl for each one and they’re different. They have a different call and they have different needs.”The burrowing owl, for example, does better where the grass is grazed. The short-eared owl does well in tall grass.
This September, nearly 44 years to the day since King trounced Riggs in one of the biggest victories for women’s equality in sports, the Hollywood movie “The Battle of the Sexes” will be released. And Bostrom, who went on to become a Seattle lawyer and serve as president of the UW Alumni Association, will sit down in a comfy theater seat with a box of popcorn and take it all in. Again. Unlike anything I had ever seen—not Wimbledon, the French Open, the Australian Open or the U.S. Open.
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".
