The issue lingering after the Palm Springs State of the City on Tuesday wasn't necessarily anything Mayor Robert Moon had said in his speech. It was the feeling by some that attendance was off limits to people not able to pay the $100 ticket price. With a cocktail reception in the lobby of the Palm Springs Art Museum and a performance by female singers in evening gowns, the event did carry a private "members only" feel.
The Village Pub in downtown Palm Springs won't reopen Saturday as planned because a hurricane delayed the shipment of new furniture. The popular bar closed a month ago after its liquor license was temporarily revoked. Management used the 30-day suspension as an opportunity to remodel the 21-year-old site. The furniture was supposed to arrive on Friday, but the bar's owners found out late in the day that delivery was delayed because of a hurricane in the southern U.S., according to a new release.
A vegetation fire broke out on the golf course at Mesquite Country Club in central Palm Springs late Thursday, sending a large plume of gray smoke into the sky. The fire charred multiple palm trees and vegetation, and scorched large swaths of the manicured grass. Condominiums north of the blaze appeared unaffected and no buildings appear to be threatened. Neighbors said that fire appeared suddenly after 5 pm.
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".
