So far this season, nearly 800 people have been hospitalized with flu like symptoms in Multnomah, Clackamas and Washington counties. Two Oregon children died earlier this month from the flu. Oregon usually has one or no pediatric flu deaths a season. Join us for a roundtable on the reasons why this year’s flu is so serious and what you can do to protect yourself and your family. It’s tonight at 7 p.m. on KXL. Peggy Lowry lost her twelve-year-old daughter to the flu.
Could Amazon have just slipped its new destination for its North American headquarters? The Boston globe is reporting Amazon is in talks to lease 500,000 square feet of offices in Boston’s fort point channel neighborhood, a hot destination for tech companies, with an option to double the space being discussed. That sounds a lot like the first stage of the plan Amazon laid out for HQ2.
Tonya Harding is making the rounds on national tv and in a new movie called I, Tonya. Reality check: the movie is a dark comedy based on a troubling crime, told from Tonya’s perspective. It was a crime that left a real victim–Nancy Kerrigan. As much as the national press would like you to believe Harding had nothing to do with the attack on Kerrigan, Multnomah county prosecutors had lots of evidence to prove she not only knew about the attack, she likely helped plan it.
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".
