Sonoma County pre-fire was a national, top ten most unaffordable place in the country for housing. So was the city of Sonoma. Efforts to address this were stuck in familiar patterns some of which were:Pretty much what we had in the North Bay, pre-fire, was people who had some measure of the California Dream, of rural-esque communities of character surrounded by farmland and open space, being squeezed by others who wanted the same thing, or who wanted to capitalize on it.
I had managed to stay off Facebook until a few months ago, and I would probably still be off if not for a chance conversation with a friend who said there was some big local policy discussion happening and that he was following it. I love discussions like that, so I said to myself, I’m going to take the leap and not get left in the dust on local issues. Now, after a bit of Facebook experience I have a few observations. In life there are many calls to action by others based on current events.
Sonoma is the only city in the county which has adopted all the local climate protection measures in the Climate Action 2020 Plan, or CAP. See p. 305 of the linked plan for a listing of Sonoma’s local measures, which are identified by an L before the measure. R is for Regional measure and S is for State measures. The mtCO2e means metric tons of carbon equivalent, and in the plan, that number means how many metric tons of carbon will be reduced by implementing the specific measures.
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".
