If you have tuned
into the station 98.1 FM, you may have noticed a weird broadcast being sent out
over the airwaves. The Kern Valley
Sun decided to investigate to find out where the signal was being broadcast
from and whether it was coming from the legitimate owner of the station, Steve
Rubin of Rubin Broadcasting, or whether someone was using makeshift equipment
to hijack the airwaves.
Photo by Ashley LozaMonday, August 21, marked the first total solar eclipse visible in the United States since February 26, 1979. The KRV was not located in the eclipse's "path of totality," where the sun is completely obscured by the moon's shadow, but a partial eclipse of about 70 percent was visible from our perspective. Pictured is the sun as it appeared at its peak from the KRV through a pair of "eclipse glasses" made dark enough to view the sun directly.
On Thursday, August 17, Congressman Kevin McCarthy's representative, Keenan Hochschild, met with residents of the Kern River Valley to discuss issues affecting the valley, the country and the world in general.The meeting began with activists from the valley presenting the need for a new Senior Center in Lake Isabella. The presenters explained that the current Senior Center does not meet modern code requirements.
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".
