The Abraxas High School garden is expanding to an orchard, thanks to a donation from the Rotary Club of Rancho Bernardo. The club donated 14 fruit trees to the school. The new orchard will be planted around the old baseball backstop near the garden. The school held a dedication ceremony on Nov. 16, where Abraxas students spoke about their work on the garden since it opened in 2015 and 100-year-old Rotarian Joe Max cut the ribbon to the orchard.
Delkin Devices will be hosting its 11th annual Toys for Tots event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 9. Held at the Ramona Airport viewing area, 2450 Montecito Road, this year’s event aims to raise $40,000 for the organization. If you can’t attend the event, toys can be dropped off any business day at Delkin Devices, 13350 Kirkham Way in the Poway Business Park. “We try to make this a bigger and bigger event every year,” said Martin Wood, CEO of Delkin Devices.
Over 100 Poway Unified School District families are still in need of “adoption” this holiday season. The district’s Adopt-A-Family program, sponsored by the Palomar Council PTA, helps about 500 low-income families each year. While many have found adopters and donors, donations and adopters are still needed. The program also usually gets another 10-to-15 families in December. The program was dealt a blow this year by having a major sponsor not return.
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".
