While the world will not be celebrating the new year for another seven weeks, the Burbank Chamber of Commerce got a jump on ringing in 2018 by presenting an early New Year’s Eve-themed mixer last week at Belmont Village Senior Living Community in Burbank. The focus of the evening, which included a wine tasting, the opportunity for participants to have their fortunes told and a champagne toast to the new year, was to acknowledge the chamber’s 2017 accomplishments and present its plans for 2018.
To kick off this month, the one in which the spirit of gratitude and thankfulness is, perhaps, stronger than it is at any other time of the year, the Burbank Coordinating Council presented its second annual Spirit of Giving luncheon at the First Presbyterian Church of Burbank this past week.
The big screen that was prominently placed in the middle of Woody’s Café on the campus of Woodbury University was keeping the assemblage abreast of the battle being waged between L.A.’s boys in blue and their rivals of Texas’ “Space City” as they vied for the Commissioner’s Trophy last Friday evening.
I'm grateful to Dick Cavett for teaching about so many things, including how to conduct an interview and then transform it into a cohesive story. Happy Birthday, Dick! I love and treasure you, our friendship, the memories of our escapades, and all you have done for me! https://t.co/cNUlrpaKZj

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".
