Editor’s note: Compiled from reports to Tacoma police. March 15: After you sign the papers and drive the car off the lot, it’s your problem. You don’t get your money back if you crumple the front end three weeks later. The Tacoma man had no use for such customs, though he worked at the lot. The dispatch call reported a man threatening workers and claiming to have a gun. Two Tacoma officers drove to the 3200 block of South Tacoma Way and found two men at the entrance to the car lot.
Last year, King County took steps to allow two such sites in unincorporated areas, though they haven’t been established, and public opposition to them has been fierce. The sites are controversial, and they don’t exist in the United States — yet. Pierce County Council members are poised to ban something no one is proposing: so-called safe-injection sites for drug users.
Pierce County Council members are poised to ban something no one is proposing: so-called safe-injection sites for drug users. The resolution, sponsored by council members Jim McCune and Pam Roach, would bar the establishment of such sites in unincorporated areas. It’s slated for an initial public hearing Monday at the council’s Rules and Operations Committee. Safe-injection sites aim at users of heroin and other drugs.
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".
