Construction of a rare roundabout on a state highway at the intersection of state Route 76 and Valley Center Road is on schedule. Designed to curb serious accidents at the dangerous intersection, the roundabout and associated road realignment are expected to be completed by July. The estimated $15.5 million project will significantly slow traffic at the intersection, which for decades has been controlled by a single stop sign at Valley Center Road.
Tuesday marked the beginning of a new era for the Escondido Public Library, with a private company taking over its staffing and management. Library officials say the public should notice no changes, but opponents are vowing to continue fighting what they say is a dereliction of civic responsibility by the city in an effort to save a little bit of money.
The company that owns the San Luis Rey Downs Training Center, which was devastated by last month’s Lilac Fire, said it plans to rebuild and have at least half of the horses back at the Bonsall facility by the end of this month and the rest by mid-April. Tim Ritvo, chief operating officer of The Stronach Group, said it’s been an emotional time for everyone involved, but the company is resolved to regroup. He also said the long-term future of the training center looks bright.
All evacuations orders were lifted Sunday evening and all roads have reopened in the Bonsall and Fallbrook areas after fear of renewed Santa Ana winds did not materialize and crews got a firm handle on the Lilac fire.
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".
