San Diego County has 70 miles of coastline. But for kids living in the inner city or in low income communities, access to the region's beaches can be out of reach because of poverty and lack of transportation. The nonprofit group Outdoor Outreach teamed up with the Boys and Girls Club of Imperial Valley on Wednesday to bring more than 20 kids from the Imperial Valley — some of whom have never been to the ocean — to Coronado's Silver Strand State Beach for two days of water play and camping.
A new California bill may give teenage students more time to sleep every morning. The state Senate passed the bill, SB-328, earlier this week. It calls for a mandated later school start time statewide, with classes beginning no earlier than 8:30 a.m. The measure applies to middle and high school students. Its proponents argue studies show teenagers are not getting enough sleep. The American Academy of Pediatrics supports the bill.
San Diego officials announced the expansion of the SDPD's Bait Bike program in Pacific Beach Thursday. Councilwoman Lorie Zapf added another $3,000 to the program, which launched in 2014. Authorities said while bike theft is a citywide problem, Pacific Beach is the hardest hit area. Bait bikes have a GPS device embedded in their frames. When they are stolen, police can track the theft happening in real time and apprehend the criminal.
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".
