Two “living legends” were in the spotlight at the annual holiday brunch to benefit the Pasadena-Altadena Chapter of The Links, Inc., in collaboration with the Pasadena Altadena Community Endowment Fund (PACEF) on Dec. 3, at Pasadena’s Imperial Palace.

The National Weather Service issued new red flag warnings for most of Southern California early Saturday as windy conditions continued to make firefighting efforts across the region more difficult. They said very low humidity levels and strong, gusty winds would persist in most mountain and valley areas through Sunday night. Officials expected winds of 15 to 25 mph, with gusts up to 40 mph. Wind speeds will increase to 20 to 30 mph, with gusts of 50 mph, in the afternoon and evening.
The region’s top air-quality monitor Saturday warned residents to continue taking precautions — like avoiding rigorous outdoor activities and keeping vulnerable people indoors — due to smoke from several still smoldering wildfires across Southern California. The South Coast Air Quality Management District said in an alert that air quality remained unhealthy in areas directly affected by smoke.
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".
