The best thing to come to downtown Fullerton since the city council redistricting plan pushed through last year by a few bar owners in order to ensure that the people who live downtown don’t actually get to vote for candidates who truly represent downtown (just kidding: that thing SUCKS) is Half Off Books, a bookstore that held court in Whittier for some 10 years before moving to the Paris of North Orange County last month.
Though teaching and paying bills took him away for a while, William Mittler was a freaking playwriting machine in the 1990s. He wrote nearly three dozen plays, most produced at STAGEStheatre, before transitioning into education at Fullerton College. But in 2005, Mittler was asked to write a play about a mostly forgotten slice of Orange County: Olinda, a small oil community at the mouth of Carbon Canyon that lasted, roughly, from 1900 to 1950.
Their names are as eclectic as the extensive list of musical styles and performers they cover: Selah, Clarah; Havilah, and Tabithah. Together, they are four sisters from Fullerton, the Darden Sisters and it might be a good idea to check them out now, because if they have anything to say about it, and if there is any justice on this spinning rock, they'll be playing well outside of Fullerton for years to come.
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".
