Poway voters will elect their four city council members by districts rather than at-large following a vote this week that all but finalized the change. For the past six weeks, the council has held numerous meetings to create a boundary map establishing four geographic zones from which council members will be elected. All four current members of the council will remain in their positions for now, as will the mayor, whose job will continue to be decided by all city voters.
Turns out that Gary Potasky isn’t the real name of a vocal critic of a special election ballot measure in Poway concerning development of part of the Stoneridge golf course. The name was attached to a news release Sunday announcing the creation of an anti-Measure A website. The critic identified himself as Potasky several times on the telephone, has an email address containing that name, has engaged people in social media chats and had email exchanges using the name.
Significant progress appears to have been made Tuesday toward solving the long-running and dangerous parking situation along state Route 67 in Ramona near where thousands of people each month climb to the top of Mt. Woodson and Potato Chip Rock. County officials and others, including the property owner, toured an 84-acre parcel of land located just west and north of the Mt. Woodson Cal Fire station late Tuesday morning and a plan started to take shape.
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".
