Forty years ago — March 18, 1978 — Ontario hosted what is still the largest event in its history. California Jam II, the sequel to the 1974 rock festival, drew tens of thousands to the Ontario Motor Speedway. Some 225,000 tickets were sold, setting a record for a single-day paid attendance at a rock concert. The actual crowd size due to gate-crashers has been estimated at 300,000 to 350,000.
My March 5 column on Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, the Hollywood landmark that is the subject of the loving website graumanschinese.org, brought back memories for Mary Elizabeth Parker. Very old memories. “That’s where I worked for my very first job in 1944,” Parker, who read that column in the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, told me by phone. “I also had the privilege of meeting Mr. Grauman.”Parker, now 91, was 18 at the time.
At Flo’s Cafe, customers like their pie. The country diner at the Chino Airport meets that demand by running a two-person bake shop in the back that churns out pies, as well as cinnamon rolls, jams, puddings and more. “Today we made 20 pies,” assistant baker Esmeralda Ramirez told me Monday. “Sometimes we make 36 or 40.
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".
