MONTEREY >> Two years ago, chaos erupted at Bay View Academy when the principal left in the middle of the school year. Barely in its fourth year of existence, the school was on its way to a fourth principal, resignations ensued and some feared the fledgling charter would not survive the turmoil. “We weren’t sure we were going to have a school,” said Sheri Shaw, a board member since 2013 and parent of a seventh-grader.
Salinas >> Eighteen farmworkers were sent to the emergency room early Thursday to be examined for possible insecticide poisoning. Although it’s still early in the investigation, a possible culprit could be methomyl, a pesticide that can be highly toxic when ingested or absorbed through the eyes and moderately poisonous when inhaled, but of lower toxicity when absorbed through the skin, medical and agriculture officials said Friday.
CASTROVILLE >> Thanks to a $1,000 donation from inmates housed in a Soledad prison, 60 children received backpacks Friday to start pre-kindergarten classes at the North Monterey County Unified School District. The distribution also marked the launch of the Stuff the Bus campaign, aimed at raising enough funds to buy backpacks and school supplies for low-income children in Monterey County.
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".
