“It’s like a reunion here,” New York Times best-selling author, “Glee” star and Clovis native Chris Colfer said Tuesday, taking the stage at the Mercedes Edwards Theatre in his hometown for the 13th stop in his “Land of Stories: Worlds Collide” book tour. Colfer relayed how it felt odd to be back in Clovis as hundreds packed the venue where he stood years ago as a child. “I can’t believe I’m back on stage where I did so many school plays.
A Visalia man was sentenced Friday to 40 years in prison for molesting one child after pleading no contest to 17 counts of lewd acts, the Tulare County District Attorney’s Office said. Eliot Garcia, 31, pleaded no contest on June 16 to the charges, which included special allegations of substantial sexual conduct, the district attorney’s office said. Garcia committed the crimes between September and December 2016 with a single victim, said the district attorney’s office.
Fresno City Council President Clint Olivier is raising by $2,000 the Crime Stoppers reward for information leading to the arrest of the man who killed Casey “K.C” Haggard, the transgender woman slain two years ago on Blackstone Avenue. The reward will now sit at $7,000, and Olivier hopes that will get more people talking. “It’s two years later and we still haven’t got him yet,” Olivier said by phone Monday.
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".
