News that the sportfisher Ranger 85 was heading into port at San Diego with what could be a record bluefin tuna spread fast and created quite a stir when it arrived Wednesday morning. On board was San Diego angler Joe Roder, who had fought the big fish for nearly two hours. The weight, estimated based on its length and girth, was 373.5 pounds. If certified, it could be a West Coast record for a bluefin caught with rod and reel.
It’s impossible not to smile when a hummingbird lands on your finger. I was hanging a feeder filled with fresh nectar when an impatient Anna’s hummingbird decided that I’d make a good perch. This was just another delightful encounter with one of nature’s most interesting and enjoyable creatures. I’ve spent countless hours working at my desk and watching hummingbirds congregating at the feeder outside my window.
The summer-warm waters of Lake Poway have produced a new blue catfish record, and it’s not even close. And there is another twist. The new catfish record will be shared between the two anglers who participated in landing the monster whiskerfish. Those anglers would be Ryan Hopkins and Nathan DeWeese who smashed the old catfish record set in 2008 by hauling in a 44-pound, 8-ounce blue catfish. The old record was exactly 10 pounds lighter, according to Lake Poway Senior Park Ranger Mark Barca.
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".
