SANTA BARBARA,Calif. - A Santa Barbara trike rental and sales business has worked with the city on stronger safety for their customers and others in the area. The plan was developed in part because of the popularity of the trike rentals, alongside other rentals such as buggy's, surrey's and beach cruisers. At any given time you can see one or more zipping by. Trike customers are given a safety check before they are given the green light to take off on their drive around the area.
ISLA VISTA, Calif. - A very crowded Isla Vista intersection could be much safer as the school year begins next week at nearby UC Santa Barbara. The Pardall Road route to campus is often jammed with bike riders, and it's been difficult for drivers crossing at Embarcadero del Norte. The signal light has a quick turnaround. A bike rider who sees it change from a distance will more than likely be seeing a greet light by the time they have arrived. Delays are not expected.
RINCON BEACH, Calif. - The wandering bear on Rincon beach last month had a serious medical condition that has now been revealed. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife says the 320 pound bear was in bad shape when they caught it. It was eventually euthanized. Now, after a necropsy by a DFW vet, it was learned the bear had a brain tumor. When the bear came out of a creek at the Ventura- Santa Barbara County line people on the beach quickly grabbed their phones and took pictures.
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".
