Hillsboro-based SolarWorld won an important ruling Friday from a federal trade panel investigating its complaint against Chinese importers. It will be up to President Donald Trump, though, whether to sanction Chinese companies. The U.S. International Trade Commission voted 4-0 to affirm that Chinese imports have imported domestic solar manufacturing.
A Hubbard company must pay employees $285,000 after denying them overtime pay from 2014 to 2016, the U.S. Department of Labor said Friday. The department said the judgment against Westside Drywall covers 82 employees and is split between back wages and damages. The company said Friday that it will consult with its attorney before commenting. Workers are entitled to one-and-a-half times their regular pay when working more than 40 hours a week, according to the Department of Labor.
Precision Castparts welders in the Portland area voted Friday to join a union, according to labor organizers, a decision that directly affects only about 100 employees but could have an outsized impact on one of Oregon's largest companies. Throughout the union drive, labor organizers said they hoped that unionizing part of the company could lead to a broader effort at Precision Castparts.
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".
