Both supporters and foes of a California bill that aims to ban people from openly carrying long guns in unincorporated areas agree on one thing: It's not everything it seems. Supporters see the bill waiting on Gov. Jerry Brown’s signature as closing an important loophole, since open carry of the guns is already banned in incorporated parts of the state.
Fed up with "quality of life" crimes in the county, the Redding Rancheria announced today it's giving $200,000 to the Shasta County District Attorney's office to help prosecute misdemeanor camping, theft, drug possession and more. The money will pay for a full-time "community prosecutor" and support staff for at least a year, said Maria Orozco, spokeswoman for the tribe. But Orozco noted that the problem in the community makes a "multi-year need."
After a double-whammy of town halls full of angry constituents who hurled Rep. Doug LaMalfa with insults in Butte County, the Richvale Republican had a relatively warm welcome Monday in Yreka. But the town hall at the Best Western Miner's Inn still had its share of residents frustrated with LaMalfa's efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, his stance on pot and his reaction to white supremacy.
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".
