Wild turkeys thriving in the Bay Area suburbs, pooping everywhere and scratching the roofs of carsLike a pack of troublemaking teenagers showing up to a party uninvited, about 20 wild turkeys swing by the home of Anthony and Holly Blackburn in Martinez on a daily basis. The loitering birds scratch through the landscaping, kicking up the mulch in the plant beds and pushing it onto the street. They poop all over the driveway and front porch and in general make a big mess.
Storm churns up massive waves on Lake Tahoe: 'It looks like the ocean'A fierce storm churned up massive waves on Lake Tahoe on Wednesday afternoon, with some breakers reaching as high as six feet. "It was like being at the ocean," says Tahoe resident Peter Spain, a professional photographer who captured the dramatic wave action in a video. "It was raging out there. It was pretty surreal."
The double-trailer carrying live poultry flipped at 5:30 a.m., and according to KTVU, several chickens lived through the crash and were squawking on the roadside but many were barely moving. Chickens crossing the road shut down traffic along Highway 121 (12) in both north and southbound directions between Ramal and Napa roads in Schellville, KCBS reports. KFOG traffic reporter Mark Nieto wrote on Twitter, "Heads up! Chickens now walking on the highway!"
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".
