Bleary-eyed Dodgers fans arrived at an El Segundo store before dawn Friday to snag shirts, hats and other items in celebration of the team's first World Series appearance in nearly three decades. The Dodgers routed the Cubs 11-1 Thursday night to win the NLCS, 4-1. Hours later, Dodgers fans were in Dick's Sporting Goods in El Segundo to gear up for the World Series. "It's been a big thing in our family for 29 years," said Dodgers fan Donna Mae McMahon, of Hawthorne. McMahon was on a mission.
The year was 1988. The Lakers were still in short-shorts and winning championships, a former California governor was in the White House, the Olympics were in Canada and South Korea and "The Last Emperor" won an Academy Award for Best Picture. And, in October of that same year, the Los Angeles Dodgers were in the World Series and "Red Red Wine" by UB40 was on top of the Billboard Hot 100.
Firefighters responded to at least two car fires early Thursday in a North Hollywood neighborhood.At least five cars were charred by the fires, which also ignited trees. Video showed flames climbing the trees in front of a home in the 5900 block of Capenter Avenue. At least one other car fire was reported on Beck Avenue, about five blocks east.It was not immediately clear whether the fires are related.
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".
