But they also can be taxing.”Seeing the portable ice rink downtown on its last day brought a bit of nostalgia. When I was a senior at Tamalpais High School, Mill Valley, we had a PE class — ice skating! Not known for ice rink in the small town, our teacher took us to what was then the Jack Tar Hotel in San Francisco, which boasted a skating area at the top of the building, where one could skate and view pretty much the whole City. That’s the good part of my memory.
Ukiah area Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1900 have been sponsoring a $5 monthly breakfast fundraiser for decades. Funds raised go to the many worthwhile projects the VFW supports, flowing back into the community a variety of ways, including student scholarships. But like so many things, now all those who’ve served so faithfully, both in the military as well as civilian life, are growing older.
There’s a wonderful old book, “The Night Before Christmas by Henry Livingston, Jr., NOT Clement Moore.”Another book, “Who wrote ‘The Night Before Christmas?’ Analyzing the Clement Clarke Moore vs. Henry Livingston Question” celebrates the life and times of Poughkeepsie Army Major and land-holder Henry Livingston, Jr. (1748—1828), the true author of that classic of popular culture, “The Night Before Christmas.”Mary Van Deusen’s lively writing is enhanced by a wealth of reminiscent illustrations.
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".
