Today let’s consider the purpose of imprisonment in the case of Karen Lofgren. Lofgren and her husband, both of Gig Harbor, were married in 2002. Both were 37. She was a nurse at Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital in Tacoma; he owns a construction and design business in Gig Harbor. There was tension from the start of the marriage: she wanted children; he didn’t. She became pregnant by in vitro fertilization and gave birth to a child.
In a three-day period in September, 89 new prisoners were taken into the Kitsap County Jail, 69 men and 20 women. The intake process includes giving name, address, date of birth, and the name of a contact person; giving a medical and psychological history; being fingerprinted and photographed; and relinquishing all personal property. How does the jail staff know if a new inmate has relinquished all personal property? They don’t, unless they have reason to require a strip search.
Those in the Pacific Northwest may be more difficult to persuade than many others around the world that the earth is getting warmer. While we may have sensed that the seasons are not what we remember, that rainy periods and dry periods are both lasting longer, that both cold periods and hot periods are becoming more intense, it’s easy to regard those as aberrations.
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".
