Elderly Adolph Lindo, jeweler and watch and clock repairer, was quiet and unassuming, but well respected as a pioneer merchant. Born in Sweden, he came to Chino around the beginning of the 20th century and established himself in a small shop on D Street just east of Sixth. His modest store had a room in the rear where he often cooked his meals and spent the night, but he also had several other parcels of land around town.
When the nearby Pomona Fair opened 95 years ago it put a damper on Chino’s hopes to host a similar annual celebration for San Bernardino County. Agriculture was the mainstay of the small community founded by Richard Gird, which still remained off the beaten path 35 years later. Agriculture was the driving force behind the first Los Angeles County fair next door, which overshadowed a Chino fair begun in 1921. An online service is needed to view this article in its entirety.
Last March I described some of the language that sports fans learn in order to converse with each other and understand sports writers. Many of my friends grew up before or during the advent of the atom bomb and color television. Mathematic calculations were done on a slide rule, the dial telephone was doing away with the friendly voice of “Central" or “Operator,” and airline passenger attendants were all young good-looking females, known as stewardesses.
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".
