After a hot summer, some rain would be great this week, and thanks to more moisture moving in we could definitely see some over the next few days. Don’t expect everyone to get a good soaking, but it’s possible you could wet anytime between Sunday afternoon and Wednesday morning. Sunday’s thunderstorms will have a lot of dry air to work with, so rain will be less likely the first day and fire starts will be something to watch.
Thanks to the Detwiler Fire burning in California, near Yosemite, it's been pretty smoky around here. The air quality reached the unhealthy range in Reno and Sparks Wednesday morning, and it was hazardous farther south. "Locally around here down into Carson Valley, Douglas County has been the worst air quality we've seen this AM," said meteorologist Tony Fuentes from the National Weather Service.
With all the added water, boating at Lake Tahoe is a blast this year and officials want to make sure people are staying safe. "We have a zero tolerance in life jackets. So they do not have a jacket on them or on the boat we are going to cite for that," said Game Warden Buck Tingle. If you want to stay safe the best thing you can do is to wear a life jacket, not just have it in the boat. Floatables are not a good option.
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".
