I remember meeting Etok in Barrow in 1964 and listening as he laid out his plan for the land claim and a prediction that the presence of oil on the slope would cause Congress to finally settle the issue. Prudhoe Bay had yet to be discovered, and Etok was thinking of small oil and gas discoveries made by the U.S. Navy in what is now the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska in the 1950s, but he was still prophetic.
Editor’s note: This is part of an occasional series on Prudhoe Bay turning 40 years old and its impact on AlaskaFAIRBANKS — What were things like in Alaska before oil?They were pretty tough.Taxes were high; jobs were scarce; the economy was dicey, and the young state of Alaska was basically broke.Still, there was an air of optimism.
Editor’s note: This is part of an occasional series on Prudhoe Bay turning 40 years old and its impact on Alaska.Forty years ago this summer, North Slope oil began flowing into the newly-completed trans-Alaska oil pipeline beginning an 800-mile journey to a marine loading terminal, also new, in Valdez.Since then the state of Alaska has grown and prospered, and has also collected $141 billion in petroleum royalties and taxes, according to figures compiled by the state Department of Revenue....
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".
