You have until Dec. 22 to comment on the latest application put forward to exempt a larger portion of the Arroyo Grande oil field from the Safe Drinking Water Act. The field's current operator, Sentinel Peak Resources, needs a final determination on the exemption before it can make any progress on the next two phases of an oil well-drilling expansion project in Price Canyon that is currently in limbo.
The SLO County Board of Supervisors voted on Dec. 12 to maintain the status quo when it comes to affordable housing, at least for now. During the hearing, supervisors debated whether to change up the county's inclusionary housing ordinance, which basically requires developers to produce a percentage of affordable housing with any projects they build or pay an in-lieu fee into a fund that is set aside for nonprofit builders to leverage.
Everyone inhales sharply, exhaling with a "wow" or an "ooh" or an "ahh." There are about 20 of us cozied up toward the bow of the Princess Monterey. To the left, two humpback whales are surfacing in unison about a quarter of a mile from the boat we're on. Sea lions are jumping in and out of the water and a gaggle of birds swarm overhead. As the whale tails flick back under water, our tour guide announces that the sea lions are most likely annoying the whales.
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".
