The San Diego Animal Support Foundation is holding one of its major adoption events of the year at Grossmont Center next month. The nonprofit group will team with Grossmont Center to bring nearly two dozen rescue groups and shelters with hundreds of adoptable dogs and some cats for the third annual Dog Days of Summer MEGA Adoption Event. The free adopt-a-palooza will be from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 15 within the interior of the La Mesa shopping mall off Grossmont Center Drive.
The Otay Water District board of directors last month approved a $118 million 2018 budget, which includes $98 million for operating funds and $20 million for capital improvements. The total marks a 7.1 percent increase from the previous operating budget. Factors for the higher budget include rising costs from the San Diego County Water Authority, Metropolitan Water District of Southern California and the city of San Diego.
In presenting this year’s $155.7 million preliminary annual budget to the City Council, El Cajon City Manager Doug Williford sounded the alarm. With contributions to the California Public Employees Retirement System climbing at a swift rate, the city continues to face a financial burden, as are many other jurisdictions in the state.
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".
