The Coachella Valley’s first Starbucks opened at 101 S. Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs on March 9, 1996. Since that time, the bustling coffeehouse – situated at the southwest corner of Tahquitz Canyon Way – has been a popular gathering spot after early morning walks, runs or hikes for casual business meetings, for people watching – especially when the Marilyn statue took up temporary residence across the street – and for winding down after a long day – or week – of work.
The U.S. Marine Corps birthday—November 10, 1775—is celebrated every year with cake and more than a few “oorah”s. But this year's celebration in Desert Hot Springs came with a special present: Two local veterans donated $30,000 to the high school's Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program—to provide scholarships and other assistance to cadets.
Renowned pianist, composer and prolific recording artist John Bayless experienced a rude awakening on the first night he and his partner, Bruce Franchini, spent at their new home in the desert. The couple had just moved from the Bay Area to a two-story residence in Indio in 2007 and were still waiting for the furniture – and John’s Steinway Concert Grand Piano – to arrive. “I was sleeping and I had a terrible, horrific nightmare and I woke up – and something was wrong with my right arm," he said.
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".
