Every now and then when Brock Shelton is out fighting a wildfire, the wind will shift suddenly, making it hard to breathe. His eyes will start to water. “You’ll go from breathing clean air to all of a sudden you’re like, ‘Oh man, I better get out of here,’” said the 22-year-old wildland firefighter, who is in his third year of working for the U.S. Forest Service. Oregon fires are keeping the Pomeroy, Washington, resident busy. He’s worked the Milli Fire, the Nash Fire and several others.
The state of Oregon will host meetings across Central Oregon in October to help people understand their health insurance options, whether that be commercial policies on HealthCare.gov, Medicare or Medicaid. A representative from Oregon’s Health Insurance Marketplace and Senior Health Insurance Benefits Assistance will explain the difference between policies and programs and answer attendees’ questions. Each meeting will last one hour.
Bob Oakden is effectively housebound most days. He might be able to walk up the hill outside his house, but the 88-year-old’s tremors make his legs so weak, he can’t go far — and never without his cane. Lately, he’s found it tough to juggle the 10 different pills he takes daily, the aches in his back and stomach, and the difficulty swallowing. He lives with his daughter and son-in-law outside of Prineville, but they’re often gone during the day.
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".
