Three San Diego businesses have secured temporary state licenses to manufacture cannabis concentrates, thanks to a special grace period granted to them by the City Council one year ago. The businesses, Allegiance Wellness Center Inc., Humanity Products Inc. and Vista Prime Management, LLC, are all licensed for so-called "nonvolatile extraction." This method uses tools such as water, carbon dioxide or glycerin to extract concentrated oil from the cannabis plant.
Torrey Holistics was one of the first cannabis dispensaries in California to get a temporary license to sell adult use marijuana this month. Now the store is gearing up for a wave of new business on Monday as that license becomes valid and adult use sales become legal. "On January 1st we're expecting a lot of people, hopefully," general manager Christine Bordenave said with a laugh. "We're excited for adult use sales to start."
Year-end data from the Metropolitan Transit System suggest two new fare payment options introduced in 2017 are quickly catching on with public transit riders. Compass Cloud, the mobile ticketing app launched by MTS in late March, has pulled in approximately $2.5 million in transactions in its nine months of operations. Those numbers were likely boosted by a $100,000 marketing campaign that included digital, radio and print ads.
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".
