There was no holiday on November 11 a hundred years ago. The United States was just gearing up for its entry into World War I months after we declared our alliance with Britain and France to fight Germany. A year later, on November 11, 1918, an armistice was declared and that date became a holiday in its honor. Then came World War II and Korea, and a whole new generation of military veterans, so observance was changed to Veterans Day to honor them all.
After prying my eyes open I noticed the clock on my dresser said it was only 7:15 a.m. Not bad for Sunday morning. Then I glanced at the ceiling where my bedside clock flashes the time, and it said 8:15. What gives? Then I remembered, the dresser clock is more than ten years old, equipped with an automatic adjustment for changing daylight saving time, installed back when the time change took place on the last Sunday in October.
I is for the Ice Service--For many years a Chino fixture on Seventh Street, then on Riverside Drive, it started as a branch of the Pomona Ice Company. A new block building replaced the old one on Seventh north of D, now the Senior Center parking lot, in 1949 by J.B. Andrews, the local distributor. In 1951 Mr. and Mrs. Charles Sturtevant sold the business to returning Chino resident Floyd Ades, who turned it over to son Jerry in 1971.
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".
