Cause Hanna always picked the dragonfly as his spirit animal. It was part of an icebreaker for students, professors and others who came to the Santa Rosa Island Research Station. Everyone was asked to choose an animal, an exercise meant to make them feel comfortable and connected to the remote island 40 miles off Ventura and part of the Channel Islands National Park. Hanna, who led the program, also participated. “Because they’re so cool, and they start off in the water, swimming around as larvae.
Students and colleagues remembered Cause Hanna as a dedicated researcher and teacher, someone who pulled people together, and one of the fastest hikers they knew. Hanna, founding director of the Santa Rosa Island Research Station, died Monday. He was 35. "He has just had such a profound impact on the university, on our students and also on the community," said CSU Channel Islands President Erika Beck. "I think he inspired our students," she said.
Campers lined up early trying to get a spot at McGrath State Beach campground when it reopened Friday after nearly three years. The campground near Ventura Harbor spent much of that time flooded and underwater. After drying out this spring, California State Parks crews and volunteer groups got to work cleaning up. "We were able to get 42 sites open," said Tyson Butzke, state parks' Ventura sector superintendent. That's out of about 150 total. But it was a start, he said. "We're happy to be open.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
