A San Luis Obispo County judge decided Wednesday there is enough evidence to move the case of a deadly Grover Beach dog mauling to trial. Judge Hugh Mullin's decision brought cheers and then tears to many in the courtroom who were there to support victim David Fear's family. Wednesday's hearing focused on what happened the day of the mauling, December 13, 2016. Hours before the attack, Alex Geiger's roommate told investigators she texted Geiger about a gap in the backyard fencing.
CAL FIRE on Wednesday released the preliminary causes for a string of recent fires in San Luis Obispo County due to concerns from the community that they may have been arson-related. The Hill Fire, Stone Fire, Tower Fire and Spring Fire were all caused by human influence, but arson did not play a role in any of them, officials said. "We wanted to get this out to put the community at ease that there is not an arsonist running around," said Chris Elms, CAL FIRE Public Information Officer.
Humans aren't the only ones fleeing from the wildfires burning throughout Santa Barbara County. Volunteers have been working around the clock to help several wild animals trying to escape. Animal Rescue Team Inc. is one non-profit rescue organization that is helping to rehabilitate rabbits, hawks and other birds that have been found injured and covered in ash. "We flush out their eyes because they are coming in filled with ash.
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".
