Grant County residents could see internet speeds three- to 20-times faster in the near future. The city of John Day plans to leverage recently received state funding on additional grants to construct a fiber optic line from Burns to John Day and to deliver access to residents throughout the county, boosting capacity and data transmission speeds. John Day City Manager Nick Green said the average download speed in the county is about 10 megabits per second, though some areas are worse.
The thousands of Rainbow Gathering attendees come from all walks of life, but they share one thing in common: the need to eat. As of Tuesday afternoon, the expected high point of the 45th annual gathering on national forest lands, more than 13,000 people had set up camp. Flagtail Meadows, the site of the gathering in the Malheur National Forest south of John Day, buzzed with activity over the weekend as new arrivals carried supplies into the camp.
Roughly a dozen volunteers broke ground on a new section of trail in the Magone Lake area in nearby Grant County. The few hundred feet of trail built in late May is the beginning of a multi-use trail system in the area and the culmination of years of collaboration between the Eastern Oregon Trail Alliance and the Forest Service. “This is purpose built for mountain biking, but we’re not precluding other users such as hikers, runners and equestrian users,” EOTA board member Wade Tait said.
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".
