The Truckee Tahoe Community Chorus last weekend dazzled a full house of families and friends during the holiday concert entitled, "A Season of Peace." Truckee Tahoe Youth Chorus opened the show at The Resort at Squaw Creek with 28 children singing "The Biggest Brightest Holiday Lights." The program described the opening number as a rip-roaring, country-style holiday novelty and the youth chorus certainly did not disappoint.
Nonprofit organizations in North Lake Tahoe are inviting community members to take the spirit of giving beyond their own homes through small gestures that they say mean the world to people in need. "The way I see it, working and being a local of 20-plus years here in Incline, you don't even imagine how many people are in need; just because people live in Incline doesn't mean everyone is wealthy," said Nayeli Enriquez-Ramos, office manager for Tahoe Family Solutions of Incline Village.
Sherry McConkey is a local luminary of nearly 27 years, who is well known for her work with The Shane McConkey Foundation. The foundation supports other community resources with donations, an effort she launched after losing her husband, extreme athlete, Shane McConkey, in 2009. "The mission of the foundation is to carry on Shane's legacy through random acts of kindness and charitable giving, and to inspire others to make a difference in the world at large," McConkey said.
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".
