ORANGE — Racing his scooter toward an eight-foot gap at Ayala Skate Park, 8-year-old “Big Air” Joe Zavala ramps up and takes to the sky. At the International Scooter Association’s regional finals in Chino a few months ago, Joe dominated his division, besting several competitors more than twice his age. During the Scooter Hut Pro Scooter Series qualifier this weekend, it will be announced that Joe will be making his pro debut, taking to the ramps with his 14-year-old brother, Ronnie.
COSTA MESA — Following a series of inspections, the G Force ride at the OC Fair has been deemed safe and reopened for riders on Wednesday, Aug. 9, a press release from fair officials announced. The ride’s closure late last month followed the deadly malfunction of a similar ride called the Fire Ball at the Ohio State Fair, which killed one man and injured another seven people.
A new shelter in Orange offers temporary housing for homeless families, with services and resources to help get them stay off the streets. The HomeAid Family CareCenter opened last week to great interest, with 40 residents brought in right away. The center can support a maximum of 56 people – roughly 10 to 15 families at a time. Sitting in the shelter’s dining area, Jennie Galindo watched with a smile as her 8-and 10-year-old sons played a board game together.
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".
