Look up in the sky on Friday night and you could see a meteor shower. The annual Leonid meteor shower is expected to peak late Friday night and early Saturday morning, according to National Geographic. At that time, the moon will be in a darkened state during its new phase, so there won’t be any added glare in the night sky. The absolute best time to see the shower will be between 2 and 4 a.m., when skies are at their darkest, National Geographic said.
A 21-year-old Santa Maria woman has been charged with felony possession of stolen property after authorities found her using Facebook to try to sell more than $20,000 worth of broccoli seeds stolen from her former employer, the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office said on Thursday. Sheriff’s deputies received a report of stolen broccoli seeds from Growers Transplanting Inc., a wholesale plant nursery, in Nipomo in early October, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Rain will return to the Central Coast on Thursday night through Friday morning, dropping as much as two inches on parts of SLO County. A cold front over Northern California on Thursday will progress southward, bringing partly to mostly cloudy skies and some sprinkles as it moves toward SLO and Santa Barbara counties, according to PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey. The cold front will weaken Thursday night into Friday morning.
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".
