PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – Wildfire season is fast approaching, and experts are trying to determine the best way to prepare. Wildfire scientists, land managers and policy leaders from across the west gathered at the World Forestry Center Friday for Fire Summit 2018, where they discussed the best ways to limit future fire catastrophes.
PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- Members of Congress and transportation executives met Thursday morning to discuss safety standards following several deadly train crashes -- including the one in Washington back in December. The inaugural run of Amtrak Cascades Train 501 derailed in December -- killing 3 people and wounding dozens more after the engineer took a curve too fast.
PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) --- New plans are underway to construct a combined total of 1300 new apartment units across from the Lloyd Center where Lloyd Cinemas currently sits. Design firm Holst Architecture describes the plans as a mixed use village with more than 35,000 square feet of retail space, along with structured parking. Lloyd Cinemas will move inside the mall when Sears closes. The project is scheduled to happen in 2 phases. Phase 1 is building some apartments in the parking lot.
20 to 25 mph winds are forcing the smoke horizontally, making it even harder to tell if the fire is spreading. @PDXFire has reached out to @PPSConnect to warn them that nearby students should perhaps stay inside https://t.co/hyFr48PTv2
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".
