A smoky haze settled into the metro area again on Saturday and raised air quality concerns – but forecasters say the conditions thankfully won't last long. East winds brought smoke from the Eagle Creek fire burning in the Columbia River Gorge to the Portland area overnight, said Treena Jensen, senior meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Portland. A high-pressure system then came over the area and winds died down, essentially trapping the smoke, Jensen said.
A North Plains man died after crashing into a utility pole northwest of the city Saturday, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Office. Shortly before 4:50 p.m., sheriff's deputies responded to the single-car crash at Northwest Dairy Creek Road and Oliver Hill Road. Deputies determined 58-year-old Richard Owens was driving a 2000 Volkswagen Jetta south when he lost control and hit the utility pole, according to a news release from the sheriff's office.
Before the shooter at Umpqua Community College took the lives of eight of his fellow students and one of his teachers, he had typed a six-page manifesto depicting himself as a lonely, dejected 26-year-old similar to other mass shooters. He rambled in his writing about being a virgin and having no friends. He glorified killing and glorified other killers. He included a lengthy racist rant about black men. He expressed satanic views. He wrote that he had "no job, no life, no successes" to speak of.
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".
