By the time you read this, construction of a new Sifton Market may be underway at 13412 N.E. Fourth Plain Blvd. It’ll be a relief to Thomas Ranck, owner of the property and the business, who said he’s been eager to rebuild — and restore the unique sense of community that surrounded Sifton Market — since early last year. Ranck had hoped to declare his store rebuilt and reopened for business last month, he said, but the pace of the county building permit process hasn’t quite matched his dreams.
One morning a few months ago, the whole Vancouver-Portland metropolitan area came to a halt as everyone piled into internet ticket queues to score seats for the traveling version of the Broadway show “Hamilton” — an ambitious American history lesson masquerading as musical theater. The irresistible “Hamilton” is a phenomenon for the way it explores this country’s difficult birth through brilliant hip-hop lyrics and grooves.
He’s not much of a writer, he confesses, but he does enjoy dredging stuff up — and he’s got a memory that never fails as well as a $3 million advance on a book deal. That’s what we learn about an avuncular political operative at the start of a brief, alarming play called “Amateurs” by Pulitzer Prize-winner David Auburn. What’s so alarming about it? The politico is as nice as can be until his reunion with the child of a former rival takes several shocking turns.
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".
