Monterey >> On the heels of its announcement about plans for a new fully equipped day center, Gathering For Women experienced a recent hiccup in its fundraising efforts. During last week’s farmers market in Monterey, while the program’s staff was engaged with those stopping by the nonprofit’s informational booth, the Gathering for Women’s donation box was stolen. Inside were checks, business cards of those wanting to donate services and $100 in cash.
The incident, which occurred at 1:38 p.m., left a significant bite to one of the man’s legs. A Monterey County sheriff’s deputy who arrived at the scene applied a tourniquet to stop what was described by the Sheriff’s Office as massive bleeding. The victim was transported to Natividad Medical Center, where his condition is currently unknown. His name or age has not yet been released.
Editor’s note: Operation Christmas Cheer is a fundraising effort sponsored by The Herald, The Salvation Army and 1st Capital Bank aimed at aiding local families during the holidays. Begun in 1985, the project has raised more than $2 million. During the holiday season The Herald will profile some of those who have been helped by the project. To donate simply fill out the coupon in today’s Herald. Donors are given the opportunity to have a personalized message published in the newspaper.
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".
