As boaters, swimmers, anglers and others splashed around in Lake Shasta this week, all around them millions of gallons of the water were disappearing into thin air through evaporation. And not just a little bit of evaporation. The lake can lose more than 200 million gallons of water each day to evaporation during the summer. Put into perspective, in two months during the summer, more water evaporates off Lake Shasta than all the water used by city of Redding water customers in an entire year.
While Shasta County hasn’t yet had a big blaze this summer that torches thousands of acres, conditions are ripe for fire, officials said. Temperatures in Redding have exceeded 100 degrees for the past 10 days, leaving grasses and brush in the lower elevations dried and ready to burn, fire officials say. And the high amount of rains this past winter and spring have brought a bounty of grasses in the foothills in and around Redding.
Preparing the site for a planned wellness center campus, crews have begun clearing out debris, trash and the remains of old buildings at the Henderson Open Space off Cypress Avenue. Excavators and other heavy equipment were at the site along the Sacramento River on Monday tearing out the foundation of a former building and removing other structures, according to officials with Dignity Health, which plans to build the wellness center.
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".
