Strong wind in the mountains Monday knocked down a nearly 100-year-old tree in Ramona causing a minor power outage and a road closure, authorities said. The tree fell a little before 3:30 p.m. at the corner of Sixth and B streets and hit a telephone pole, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP). Both the tree and the telephone pole were partially in lanes, the CHP said.
After last week where the USD men’s basketball team played two of its best games this season against conference heavyweights, Gonzaga and St. Mary’s, this week’s game against last-place Pepperdine should have been easy. Instead, the Toreros almost got this one taken away. USD (16-9, 7-6 West Coast Conference) was trailing by 10 points with less than nine minutes left before the Toreros rallied back with a 22-10 run to edge the Pepperdine Waves (4-21, 1-12 WCC), 68-66.
Students at Perkins Elementary School in Bario Logan are all smiling Thursday because they were given new shoes and socks by the members of the OPEIU Local 30. The Office and Professional Employees International Union, which represents primarily healthcare workers, conducted a shoe drive for the students and it was so successful that it had money left over to give to the teachers for supplies.
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".
