Backups near the interchange of Interstate 80 and Highway 65 might be one of Placer County’s longest-running and most easily identifiable problems. Traffic often begins to slow around Eureka Road on eastbound I-80 and Taylor Road in the other direction, becoming a gridlock for drivers as they merge onto Route 65. The problem is so bad that some drivers avoid the interchange altogether around certain times of day.
Lincoln resident Kimberly Tyner Davy, 64, a local businesswoman, was arrested the afternoon of Dec. 28 for alleged grand theft involving customers of her insurance company. According to a Lincoln Police Department press release, local police officers were aided by California Department of Insurance investigators in a lengthy investigation into Davy’s business practices.
Placer County’s mountain mandarin season is in full swing and I’d like to take a moment to highlight why this citrus fruit is so unique and how you can help our growers protect this precious crop from an invasive threat. Called “mountain mandarins” because the majority of our mandarin orchards are located in our Sierra foothills, it’s the location and climate of our orchards that make Placer-grown Satsuma mandarins so special and why eating just one mandarin is a near impossibility.
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".
