After organizers deemed last year’s inaugural event a success, the annual Southern California Boat Show will return to San Pedro this week. From the availability of parking to the marina setting, the Port of Los Angeles and San Pedro look to be a regular stop on the boat show tour that’s been a staple in Newport Beach and elsewhere for 45 years.
More delays have pushed back house construction on San Pedro’s much-watched future housing site on 61.5 acres along Western Avenue. Permits and hookups for utilities and other infrastructure groundwork for Highpark have taken longer — and been more complicated — than anticipated, according to those who have received updates recently from the developer. The first houses are now anticipated to be built sometime in the latter half of 2018, a year behind what was envisioned last year.
Community advocate Lucia Moreno-Linares was confirmed Wednesday as the first Wilmington resident in nearly a quarter century to take a seat on the Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners. In a unanimous 13-0 vote, the Los Angeles City Council approved the appointment by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti to replace Patricia Castellanos, who recently stepped down from the commission overseeing the Port of Los Angeles to pursue a new career opportunity.
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".
