A family friend–Titus Bonney–has been posting his adventures on a fishing trawler that went from Ventura to Alaska. When he posted pictures of the salmon they were catching I mentioned that I’d like some. Turns out Titus was heading our way & he offered me a filet that he’d drop off at my nephew’s. (I know Titus through my nephew). I wasted no time in picking up my fish & within an hour I had a nice charcoal and mesquite fire going.
I spotted this 96-pound monster at The Underwood Family Farm booth. I made this big guy stand next to it for scale, but it wasn’t successful. The guy was really big and his hands were enormous. The melon cost 49 cents a pound and I kept trying to get people to buy it. Can you imagine how good it would be to cut a hole and pour in a bunch of liquor–vodka or rum or tequila? I don’t even drink, but this would be so cool at a big party.
The sea and chowder go together like sunshine and beaches, so it’s no surprise that the Chowderfest at the Channel Islands Maritime Museum has been a big success. Museum volunteer and trustee Michelle Murphy said the response from the community to the 3-year-old festival has been overwhelmingly positive and that the event has "exceeded expectations." "The number of restaurants, the number of wineries and the attendance, along with the level of musicians, is raised every year,” Murphy said.
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".
