One of Carlsbad’s most popular holiday attractions is sold out for the first two days of operations. Christmas on the Pecos opened Friday for its 26th year, offering holiday boat tours on the Pecos River. Those who did reserve their spots ahead of time were treated to the bright colors and sights of several backyard Christmas displays during the 45-minute ride. But for Friday and Saturday, there were no seats left.
Thousands of lights will illuminate Carlsbad this weekend, marking the start of the holiday season. The third annual Night of Lights is set to feature an evening of live music, arts and entertainment for the people of Carlsbad. Planned for 5 p.m. on Saturday at Halagueño Arts Park, the event will preempt the Electric Light Parade at 7 p.m. in downtown Carlsbad.
Many Americans buy their Thanksgiving turkeys at a grocery store, unaware of where the bird was raised and how it came to the frozen meat aisle. But Phillip Huston has a different plan. Four years ago, the Ohio native started raising his own turkeys in Carlsbad. He ships the chicks in from hatcheries across the country in late July — this year from Missouri — and raises them in an open-air pen on his 126-acre property off Happy Valley Road.
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".
