The total solar eclipse is now four days from flashing across Eastern Oregon. And if you haven’t made plans yet, the race is on to claim enough space to witness the planetary oddity overhead. You’re too late for hotel rooms in Eastern Oregon’s totality zone, and the few Airbnb offerings still available come with very hefty price tags — you could get a six-bedroom villa in Sicily for the same price.
Eastern Oregon is blessed that a total solar eclipse is slicing over its midsection this August. The path of totality — where the moon and sun will perfectly align for minutes, the former blocking out the latter — looks like a belt snugly securing Oregon’s midsection from west to east. In Eastern Oregon that belt crosses over Baker City, Fossil, John Day, Ontario, Prairie City and Seneca, as well as countless other farm fields and timbered hills and sagebrush flats.
The John Day River's rafting season is short.The scorching temperatures of the desert valley quickly decimate snowpack and siphoning for agricultural production often leaves the river unrunnable by midsummer for all but the lightest of vessels.So in the few weeks when it is warm enough to sleep outside and the river is still relatively full of water, the John Day gets packed with an array of colorful floaters in search of smallmouth bass and a suntan, a few fun rapids, great stargazing and...
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".
