Our daughter is standing in the kitchen, a heavy gray rock tucked under her arm, her hands each finger glistening with a different color of nail polish cradling its awkward heft. I recognize the rock, one of many carefully selected and brought home from our summer vacations at the beach. This one had earned a prime location on the dresser in her room, a room in which she has not lived for nearly two years after deciding to move out.
Are red Solo cups littering your lawn after your neighbors exhausted themselves with beer pong? Hold them accountable for their actions. Courtesy photoEntitlement. Until a few years ago, this was a concept I hadn’t come across. Not that I didn’t know what it meant. Rather, I hadn’t been familiar with individuals who demonstrated the kind of behavior that made me question why they were so filled with it. Filled with a sense of entitlement.
Backyard chickens are becoming more and more popular in Davis. But chicken owners should be sensitive to noise, odor and other impacts on nearby neighbors.

The kind of morning when you wake momentarily before realizing that you don’t have to stumble in the dark to shower, get dressed and head out to work at an ungodly hour.
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".
