Up until near the very end, Rev. W. G. Hardy Jr., a civic leader who began his journey as a minister in small church in the heart of Portland's African American community, asked himself two questions each day: Who needed a helping hand? Who needed gentle counsel? Then he went to work. Time was precious, not to be wasted on frivolity, and certainly not in feeling sorry for himself. He pressed on through pain and fatigue, knowing the cancer would soon take him.
Unless you live in the neighborhood, you would stumble upon Taylor Court Grocery only on your way to someplace else. The store is a relic, so small it could fit inside a two-car garage. If you remember the Andy Griffith Show, the 1960s television show still a re-run staple, you'll appreciate this 96-year-old store. Linger for a while, listen to the conversations, and you'll be reminded of Mayberry and what made that fictional community a place where we so wanted to live. Find your way to 1135 S.E.
A family feud that spun out of control last year ended last week when a Clackamas man pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to making two anonymous calls to officials to falsely report that a family member traveling through the airport was a terrorist. Sonny Donnie Smith, 38, admitted last Thursday in court to making the harassing calls,.
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".
