SEATTLE -- Our first big soaking rains of 2018 are almost over. We’ll get a bit of a break on Saturday before a soggy second half of the weekend. The good news is that we’ll be on the warm side for the lowlands – with temps about 3-5 degrees warmer than the normal of 46 for this time of year. Q13 Meteorologist Tim Joyce said a few showers will linger Saturday morning, then it will dry out toward the end of the day and stay mostly cloudy with temperatures still in the mid-upper 40s.
SEATTLE– A Seahawks win and snow falling on Christmas Eve?! Yup, December 24th doesn’t get much better than that for Seattle. Cold air in place and moisture running over top of that air mass is a recipe for snow in the Pacific Northwest. The odds of a White Christmas in any given year is only about 7% for the Emerald City– this year it’s looking like 100% for most of us. The last time we had an official white Christmas was in 2008.
SEATTLE– One of the root causes for our region’s homeless crisis is something we all feel: a lack of affordable housing. That’s one reason why Seattle can’t seem to break the cycle of homelessness. It’s something we see every day in the form of tent cities. Some are legal– most are not. Now there’s a new move to replace the tents with “tiny houses”. They’re converted sheds that give people a dry roof over their heads.
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".
