Justin Wadstein’s fascination with spinning pizza dough — and just about anything else — began when he was just a child. “I would spin binders in class, pillows while watching TV at home, folding chairs during school lunches for crowds,” he said. “I even got kicked out of a store for spinning their kiddie pool.”His love of spinning has never waned, and has twirled him right into the world of competitive pizza games, where he is reigning supreme.
From the sea full of salmon and seabass, to the wild mountain mushrooms, Santa Cruz County is an all-natural buffet waiting to be explored. And exploring is just what Jason Collins and Brenden Pini are doing. The pair, both longtime commercial fisherman and foragers, launched Fished and Foraged in November, and bring their hidden edible finds to local eateries.
Congratulations to Suzi Jacobs, a Scotts Valley High School graduate who was recently awarded a college scholarship from the Monterey Bay Area National Alumnae Panhellenic for the 2016-2017 academic year. Jacobs, the daughter of Matthew and Vicki Jacobs of Santa Cruz, will receive a cash award of $1,000 for her next year of study at UC Davis.
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".
