SALINAS >> The Department of Justice is warning Monterey County officials that their local approach to federal immigration law could jeopardize some of the federal funds it has received for law enforcement purposes. The warning focuses on existing laws but it is also related to an executive order that was blocked by a federal judge on Monday. Local officials say the Trump administration is off-base and will make their position clear in their response letter.
GREENFIELD >> When Rufino Domínguez-Santos arrived in Monterey County in 2006, it was difficult for Oaxacan indigenous migrants to find assistance with a myriad of bureaucratic services. They had a hard time finding interpreters to communicate with doctors. They didn’t know who to turn to when they needed to fill out school forms. As a Mixtec Indian from Oaxaca himself, Mr. Dominguez-Santos was cognizant of these struggles and had dedicated his life to easing the suffering of his compatriots.
SALINAS >> Before heading into Thanksgiving, students of Monte Bella Elementary took part in the third annual Turkey Trot, an event that’s both a reward for good behavior and a way to burn energy. All students took part in the activity, which also doubles as the monthly fun event promised to the students as part of Positive Behavior & Intervention Systems. “They have to qualify to participate by doing work and their good behavior,” Principal Robert Nuñez 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".
