A different splash: Last weekend, young adults from around the world got to experience the Palm Springs Air Museum as a cool entertainment venue at Splash House. This weekend, it’s the valley’s turn. The air museum is screening the most recent “Star Wars” film, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” as the second presentation of its Friday Flicks series inside the General Miles Korea and Vietnam Hangar. The museum advises bringing blankets or portable chairs.
Christian Sesma grew up in the desert with a love of the comic book culture and action flicks. He turned his passions into a successful career, now known for his bang-bang, shoot-em-up action films like "Vigilante Diaries" starring Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Michael Jai White. But what only those closest to him may know is that in high school he became addicted to meth and eventually kicked the habit after a stint at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage.
Three years ago, Palm Springs police got fooled by a savvy scammer and a fake murder. This is how it happened. Thomas Alan Grossman was at his home in Palm Springs when he got a call from a man claiming to be with the IRS. Through a thick accent, the caller said Grossman owed back taxes and would be arrested if he didn’t pay up. It was an obvious scam. Most people would have ignored the call, but Grossman was angry.
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".
