Heat and wildfires tested vintners, but quality is high for signature grapesAs harvest wraps up in the Pacific Northwest, many vintners are pleased with the 2017 vintage, but some will remember this year for the dozens of wildfires that swept through the region while the grapes were developing on the vines. The fire season started in July and lasted for months, burning hundreds of thousands of acres in Washington and Oregon and blanketing the cities of Seattle and Portland in smoke and ash.
As firefighters bring blazes under control and evacuation orders are lifted, Napa and Sonoma residents return home to see what remainsThe smoke and ash remain thick over large parts of Sonoma and Napa Counties, but residents are returning and businesses are reopening. A large board outside Domaine Carneros reads, “Thank you first responders,” echoing dozens of hand-drawn signs lining the highways thanking fire crews and others who came to wine country’s aid.
As wildfires have raged across Napa, Sonoma, Carneros, Mendocino and beyond, vintners assess their young wines and yet-to-be-harvested grapesNorthern California’s harvest was already winding down when the wildfires tore through parts of Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino Counties, forcing winemakers and residents to flee.
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".
