There’s certainly nothing trendy about H. Salt Fish and Chips, and the big surprise is that the fading chain still exists. Go to its website (“copyright 2012”), click “locations” and you get an error message. Upland has an H. Salt. I’d eaten there once or twice, marveling at the back-in-time decor and taking note of the older immigrant couple behind the counter. After learning from the Upland Uncensored Facebook group that the restaurant would close Sept. 30, I stopped by to pay my respects.
A lot of adults have negative impressions of the next generation. So it was fascinating to hear author Junot Diaz, a 48-year-old Pulitzer-winning novelist who teaches fiction writing at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, address the topic in a talk at Scripps College on Tuesday, and take the side of students. Diaz, not one to mince words, said colleges are basically corporate entities whose main purpose is to extract tuition.
Want a hair-raising experience but don’t want to pay LA County Fair prices? I recommend a free alternative: the Base Line Road interchange of the 15 Freeway, which borders Rancho Cucamonga and Fontana. You can start by trying to navigate the shopping plaza by the northbound offramp. To access it, even though it’s on your right, don’t turn right!
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".
