“We cannot always prevent tragedies … what we can do is come together to prevent it happening again.”Those poignant words were spoken at Monday night’s Domestic Violence Workshop by Rev. Dr. Mary Walton, Interval House’s first director. Interval House was the sponsor of the workshop, organized shortly after mid-July, when a woman was murdered by her ex-boyfriend in his Seal Beach apartment before he committed suicide with the same gun.
The investigation of the July 16 murder/suicide on Seventh Street in Seal Beach is continuing as details trickle out about what actually happened inside Los Alamitos Police Capt. Rick Moore’s apartment that night. What is known, so far, is that Moore shot Amanda Jensen, 37, three times with his personal .38 weapon. He then turned the gun on himself. Neighbors around 7th Street and Central Avenue reported hearing arguing. Jensen called 911, but the line went dead. Neighbors heard gunshots.
The LA Fitness project proposed for The Shops at Rossmoor was voted down Monday night by the Seal Beach Planning Commission in a 3-2 vote. Commissioners Mike Thomas and Maryanne Klinger voted in favor, by voting to approve the project’s Conditional Use Permit. This week’s vote was a bit anticlimactic because there was no public hearing, therefore no public comment.
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".
