VISTA — Soul line dancers strutting their moves underneath a wave of pink balloons was the scene at the Vista Elks Lodge on Oct. 29. The afternoon was all about raising breast cancer awareness and raising funds for women needing financial assistance undergoing cancer treatments in San Diego County. StepNicely Dance, a North County business, championed the “Step Up for Breast Cancer” event, collecting nearly $6,000 for the cause.
VISTA — During an Oct. 24 City Council meeting, council members voted to approve a $140,000 one-time contractual allotment to Solutions for Change, a Vista-based nonprofit which helps the homeless in North County. Councilwoman Amanda Rigby opposed the decision. The discussion first began on Aug. 8, when Solutions for Change CEO Chris Megison spoke at a Vista City Council meeting to ask if the city could financially help the organization.
VISTA — In Vista, seniors are welcomed to attend a holiday feast on Nov. 22 — a longstanding Thanksgiving tradition at the Gloria McClellan Center. Before the buffet, The Blue Pharaohs will provide musical entertainment for an hour. Gloria McClellan Center Program Manager Donna Meester said this group was brought back by popular demand. At noon, the music will stop, and the Thanksgiving feast will begin overflowing with turkey, mashed sweet potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie.
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".
