Local women sported proud smiles Thursday as they received Women of the Year awards presented by Congressman John Garamendi. A total of 38 women within California’s Third District traversed across the Woodland Community College campus to gather in the Community Room. Joined by family, friends and others, the room could barely contain attendees, never mind the snacks, coffee and commotion. Ten of the honored women didn’t need to travel far, as they call Yolo County home.
Tucked away in Woodland’s industrial area, a local coffee company occupies a section of a warehouse that has no sign or banner — just like the product that ships nationwide from its doors, the building relies on subtlety. With the sturdy scent of roasting beans spilling into the office, Puroast Coffee Company employees filled mugs with the house roast and discussed what made their coffee good.
Dallas Tringali has more than a mean backhand throw — he also has some serious love for Woodland’s very own John Ferns Park. That park, complete with a short ‘n’ sweet 9-hole disc golf course, is located near the intersection of Southwood Drive and Ashley Avenue. It’s a local favorite containing a fully loaded playground, water features, picnic tables, tennis courts and a handball wall. Tringali, the city’s Parks and Recreation Program Manager, has a soft spot for the place.
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".
