It may seem like a right of passage for Woodlanders to complain about deteriorating roadways, but some new data suggests there may be more than potholes to whine about. A Tuesday meeting at Woodland City Hall brought to light some of the city’s most hazardous roadways and intersections; based on the numbers, much could be improved to keep drivers, cyclists and pedestrians safe.
The “100 Men Who Give a Damn about Yolo County” also give about $22,000. The local fundraiser debuted in 2017 featuring a simple method of raising funds for local organizations: men (among some women) gather at a location to hear three nonprofits pitch their mission and how they achieve their goals. Meanwhile, “the men” write checks for $100 each, perform a silent vote on their preferred organization, and the pitch with the most votes receives all of the checks.
A months-long investigation conducted by the FBI and local agencies came to a point in Woodland Wednesday morning, when a series of raids in 10 California counties cuffed 31 affiliated gang members. Deemed “Operation Silent Night,” the investigation monitored phone and social media usage of suspected gang members sourced in Woodland and other Northern California areas. Some of those charged already reside in California prisons, using procured cell pones to conduct crimes from behind bars.
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".
