Hot mulled wine. Okay, maybe that wasn’t an answer to the wine quiz on my recent Romantic Danube River Wine Cruise. But it sure was the key to staying warm in the beautiful cities we visited aboard AmaWaterways over Thanksgiving week. Cruising in the “Off Season” of November and December means you can enjoy Europe like the locals without bumping into all those fair-weather tourists. But better bundle up. It’s cold out there.
Expect lots of sunshine with a drop in temperatures a few degrees lower than yesterday for the valleys. The marine layer and low clouds will keep it cooler along the coast and San Francisco. Westerly winds at 10-15 mph with times of sunshine can be expected. Wednesday will be the coolest day of the week before temperatures go back up. Thursday through early next week inland highs will reach dangerous levels, over 100 degrees. The coast and bay will also heat up as an offshore wind develops.
SOLEVU VILLAGE, MALOLO ISLAND, FIJI — Waves crash over the bows of three long boats as the torrential rains of cyclone season batter the occupants bracing against the pounding seas. With Johnny Cash blasting from portable speakers – “I ain’t seen the sunshine since I don’t know when” – San Clemente dentist Greg Herd leads a team of 28 volunteers, most from Southern California, on a 30-minute boat ride bound for the Fijian island of Malolo.
This is a live look at the sun setting over Squaw Creek! Fresh 6-9" of snow on the ground :) We'll have an update on the snow forecast for the Sierra as more storms roll into the Bay Area coming up in about 20 minutes. http://buff.ly/2FWwZiUhttps://t.co/E0yGfw3sMh
Don't put away the umbrella just yet! We still have spotty rain rolling across the Bay Area. Check out the radar. You can track rain moving into your location by downloading the NBC Bay Area app. And I'll have the full forecast at 5 PM on @nbcbayareahttps://t.co/mhovmq1jnO
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".
