San Diego Park and Recreation is encouraging people of all ages to go outside and get fit through its fourth annual Parks Fit San Diego Challenge. The challenge is to walk, run, bicycle, roll and/or swim a combined 30, 90 or 120 miles by the program’s conclusion on Aug. 12. Among participating venues is Rancho Bernardo Community Park, where those who register can earn a free Parks Fit San Diego drawstring backpack if they meet the minimum goal of 30 miles. There is no cost to participate.
Those of all ages are being encouraged by local libraries to be “Reading by Design” this summer. The free annual summer reading programs — where everyone from infants to seniors can earn prizes — has returned to the San Diego Public Library and San Diego County Library systems. This year’s theme focuses on inventors, builders, artists and writers who make the world a more engaging and creative place, according to SDPL officials.
Moonlight Stage Production’s 37th season has opened with “Aida,” a strong — but somber — musical based on an 1871 Giuseppe Verdi opera of the same name. Elton John and Tim Rice’s modern rock opera is a tragic, star-crossed love story that is compelling due to the three leads who are all Moonlight veterans — Daebreon Poiema in the title role, Richard Bermudez as Radames and Bets Malone as Amneris.
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".
