A 51st state? The so-called Northstate is looking less and less like the rest of the Golden State. The vast, sparsely populated region is whiter, more rural and poorer than the rest of the state — and residents are more conservative. While California has become the center of the resistance to President Trump, a number of Northern Californians are waging a resistance of their own: against California itself.
"In the fall of 1963, I was living in the senior girls' dorm at Chadwick School in Rolling Hills. The campus then comprised 400 acres. Rattlesnake-strewn hay fields sloped down the front, and empty hills rose behind the school. Not a house in sight. My roommate Mary and I were bored and restless one night, so we climbed out our room's back window, hurried past the Quonset huts and John-the-Cook's trailer, and climbed the hill. What a panorama on that rare smog-free midnight.
"When I was 6 in 1960, my father got a job in L.A. We moved from Chicago and lived in an apartment in Westchester for about six months. Then my parents bought a new model home in the city of La Puente (now Valinda) in the San Gabriel Valley. My dad negotiated flex hours due to 'too much traffic.' He was supposed to work 8 to 5 but got it changed to 9 to 6. He was home every night at 6:30.
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".
