Everyone has been talking about Taylor Winston, the former Marine who commandeered a truck to drive victims to the hospital after the mass shooting in Las Vegas on October 1. The Ocean Beach resident, credited with saving multiple lives, is not only looked upon as a national hero, but a local one as well. Days after the news spread, the community had already — and overwhelmingly — nominated him as grand marshal for the annual O.B.
On November 11th just before 10 a.m., a report was submitted via the City of San Diego’s Get It Done app that a “sewer man hole is off” at the end of Del Monte Avenue in Ocean Beach. Less than an hour later, two employees from the wastewater department showed up to replace it. “We got a call that the cover was off, but, man I didn’t expect to find this,” one of the employees told me. “They have two cots set up in there, people are definitely living in [the storm drain].
A surfer and her board were reunited this week after a keen eye from an employee at Coconut Peet’s in Ocean Beach recognized the stolen board from a flyer. Two weeks ago, Alexa’s board was stolen from the roof of her car. “After it was stolen, I took flyers to all the local surf shops,” she wrote. “The amazing employees at Coconut Peet's identified my board and are the ones who made the return possible!
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".
