Due to smoke from the Creek and Skirball fires, the South Coast Air Quality Management District has extended its smoke advisory for the San Fernando Valley and the Los Angeles County coastal areas. Both direct smoke and unhealthy air in general is impacting all people in those areas, said Dr. Jeffrey Gunzenhauser, LA County’s interim health officer.
The National Weather Service released this interactive map Thursday that shows the location and size of Southern California’s four biggest wildfires, the Thomas fire in Ventura, the Rye fire near Santa Clarita, the Creek fire above Sylmar and the Skirball fire in the Sepulveda Pass.
A brush fire burning uphill near the Skirball Cultural Center in the Brentwood area early Wednesday morning has consumed about 6 acres and has led to the shutdown of northbound lanes on the 405 Freeway. The blaze, is “topography-driven, not wind-driven at this time,” said the LAFD’s Margaret Stewart. The fire, reported at 4:52 a.m., is burning near the northbound 405 Freeway at Mulholland Drive, Stewart said.
Russian state tv looks more & more like 1970s Soviet TV: fulsome praise of Kremlin leader from factory workers, students, a milk maid, a teacher & synchronized swimming trainer who calls him "a real man, a macho." https://t.co/wEMsIeWsJm
Today's Russian papers look back at Vladimir Putin's successes - and failures. Fascinating how the pro-Kremlin press & papers critical of Putin paint 2 very different pictures of Russia. https://t.co/SXLFy6rgO4
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".
