You could put your name on a spacecraft that is scheduled to head to Mars next year, but you only have a few hours left to do it. NASA will launch the Insight spacecraft to Mars in May. Six months later it will set down on the surface at a place called Elysium Planitia and begin to study the interior make up of Mars. It carries an array of new instruments to the Red Planet and also a small microchip.
As we head into the last weekend of October, we should see unusually warm weather. Normal highs at Sea-Tac right now are in the mid-50s, but we are going to run 10-15 degrees warmer than normal Friday and Saturday and only cool a little on Sunday. A large ridge of high pressure has built along the coast bringing an unseasonably warm air mass to the Pacific Northwest. At this time of year, because of the longer nights, low temperatures stay cool even when the days are warm.
After getting record-breaking rainfall on Saturday ( 1.61" at Sea-Tac breaking the old record of 1.29" set in 1963), most places dried out on Sunday and it looks like most of the next week will be dry! A large ridge of high pressure will move through today and tomorrow for sunshine and highs in the 60's (normal right now is 57). It moves east of us on Wednesday and a weak front will bring us clouds and a few showers for mid-week.
Despite this mornings downpour, it should be a decent lead up to the Seahawk game tonight. And it should just be clouds around for the game itself. And mild temps for this time of year. https://t.co/wRcDMQ3Y6h
Heavy rain right now as the cold front moves through Puget Sound. Rain should fall off quickly behind it. Showers mainly Seattle northward in convergence later this morning. Clearing later today. https://t.co/xllrD0a5u5
Decreasing showers today. Very wet and mild Tuesday and Wednesday with snow levels rising to 8 to 9,000 feet. Rainy and breezy on Thanksgiving. Rain at times Friday and Saturday and cooler. Snow level drop back to 4-4,500 feet. Showers & cooler Sunday. https://t.co/fcDTGbd88t
Still a lot of showers aorund western Washington to start the day. But the showers will decrease and still looking good for the Seahawks game tonight. Rain returns Tuesday and will be with us for most of the holiday week! https://t.co/BThKH28liC
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".
