CALAVERAS COUNTY -- Teachers with the nine schools in the Calaveras Unified School District were on strike Thursday, cancelling class for nearly 3,000 students. The teachers union and the district have been negotiating since last year for a new contract. The teachers say among the issues are low wages and classroom size. And the teachers have asked for a 6.5 percent raise -- the district has countered with a 2 percent raise.
YUBA COUNTY -- Yuba County Supervisor Mike Leahy says he is helping out people impacted by the Cascade Fire by starting a fund for under-insured and uninsured victims. Yuba County says 143 homes were destroyed in the fire. Leahy says he started the fund -- which so far has raised $85,000 from local businesses -- because he was a victim of a fire in the early '90s that took his apartment and most of his possessions.
MATHER -- California Air National Guard pilot Coda Brown had seen the devastation caused by wildfires in Santa Rosa before, but he hadn't seen the damage on a clear day. "You look at it from above, and it actually looks like you're in a scene of a movie, that's the best way to describe it, you know? And how bad it hurt the area, like a bomb hit the area, it sounds incredibly destructive, but that's what it looks like, burnt up cars in the neighborhoods," Brown said.
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".
