Although it’s named after a fictional character, to Orange County fans, Lucille’s Smokehouse is the real deal and winner of the Best of Orange County award for barbecue. No news there — the eatery has topped the category every year since 2003. Chris Ferrell, executive chef, credits the success of the restaurants to a hands-on, or taste buds-on, approach. “We have very rigorous quality-control systems in place,” he said.
HUNTINGTON BEACH The process of creating a 25-year update to the city’s General Plan began in March 2014. So what’s a couple of weeks more? On Monday, Sept. 18, at the suggestion of Councilman Erik Peterson, the City Council voted unanimously to delay a decision on the document for two weeks to allow the city attorney to review items relating to housing.
To his family, Matt Cwiertny was one in a million, and it was a one-in-a-million disease that took down the 24-year-old in October 2009. From the day the 22-year-old graphic artist walked into an emergency room with a common case of mononucleosis, to his death two years later from an extremely rare immune disorder, complicated by an also rare blood cancer, Cwiertny became a symbol to his family of ineffable optimism in the face of adversity. Creating a legacy for him became their cause.
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".
