After a series of wildfires in Northern California wrought devastation across countryside and residential areas in Napa, Sonoma, and Santa Rosa the second week of October, social media feeds filled with images of leveled suburbs and reports of lives lost. Central Coast resident Daneal Nally was like most, watching the news and reports of “apocalyptic” destruction, she said. But then she made a decision.
The first homicide within Santa Maria city limits in 2017 wasn’t the result of a gang-related shootout or stabbing, but rather a suspected act of domestic violence. Natalia Morozova was found shot when Santa Maria Police Department (SMPD) officers responded to the scene near her home on North College Street in Santa Maria on Aug. 21.
In the world of stagecraft and classical music, nothing quite meets the size and scope of opera. That's something that Brian Asher Alhadeff, artistic director and conductor for Opera San Luis Obispo, is definitely cognizant of, especially when he programs an opera as iconic as Giacomo Puccini's Madama Butterfly, which shows Oct. 14 and 15 at the Cal Poly's PAC. The production calls on more than 250 people both on and off stage, doing everything from designing costumes to singing arias.
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".
