When the nearly 600 attendees of the 2017 Palm Springs Equality Awards recently seated themselves at the Riviera Palm Springs, they found a 3-D representation of the new EQCA (Equality California) logo at the center of each table. As they would later learn from a short video, the familiar = sign stacked over a reverse 7, graphically represents the shape of the state of California, with the phrase "For All."
I'm not certain who first said "Dogs are my favorite people" or "All dogs go to heaven," but those sentiments were definitely shared by the crowd at the 10th Annual Dog Day Afternoon fundraiser for Guide Dogs of the Desert. The weather was as gentle and cooperative as the dogs - mostly Standard Poodles and Labrador Retrievers – who greeted guests at the front door while others moved through the crowd as ambassadors for a day they knew was all about them.
If Gabriel Gustavson, who was chosen as Youth of the Year by the Boys and Girls Club (BGCPS) of Palm Springs, becomes an aerospace engineer as he plans, the Mission Control atmosphere at NASA might just be a little funnier. When presented his award, the Palm Springs High senior accepted not only with humor but poise and clarity as well, demonstrating some of the "polish" he's received through his BGCPS membership.
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".
