A UC Davis study suggests California’s plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent by 2050 won’t happen under current policies without a change in people’s behavior. Californians are using more energy, despite more efficient appliances and advanced technologies. Sociologist Bridget Clark with UC Davis calls it the rebound effect. She says people will buy an efficient refrigerator but put the old one in the garage.
Experts say trees in California's mountains and cities could pose a significant threat to outdoor enthusiasts this Labor Day Weekend. CAL FIRE is warning people about the dangers of dead and fire-damaged trees throughout the state. Deputy Chief Scott McLean says you should avoid setting up camp near them because they could fall without warning. "Just get into habit - call it muscle memory if you will - pay attention to your surroundings, pay attention to those trees," says McLean.
The independent Board of Consultants agreed with the California Department of Water Resources that the vegetative green spot that appears across the face of the earthen Oroville dam is caused by temporarily trapped rainwater. The report finds the spot poses no threat to public safety. The area was first noticed during construction in 1966, before the reservoir was filled. But after the Oroville dam spillway failed in February, some feared the spot suggested the dam was also at risk.
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".
