Matthew Arkin has less than an hour before he is to appear in character on South Coast Repertory’s stage, and he needs caffeine. It just can’t make him burp. “Help me,” he says straight-faced to a Starbucks barista at South Coast Plaza. “I’m performing tonight.”The barista suggests a Nitro Cold Brew, a treat that’s straight from the tap and topped with a float of house-made vanilla sweet cream.
South Coast Plaza debuted an exhibit Tuesday that tells the story of the Segerstrom family’s journey from its farming roots to developers of a luxury retail center. As part of its 50th anniversary celebration, the exhibit, “Segerstrom Pioneering Spirit: An American Dream,” is on display in the shopping center’s Jewel Court and will run till July 31. The installation traces the family of C.J. and Bertha Segerstrom who immigrated to the U.S. from Sweden and established C.J.
He’s the man who drove his Chevy to the levee, met a girl who sang the blues and sang dirges in the dark. Don McLean can still remember how that music makes him smile. As one of the country’s most-enduring singers and songwriters forever associated with hits “American Pie,” “Castles in the Air” and “Vincent (Starry Starry Night),” the 71-year-old folk-rock crooner continues to tour North America and the rest of the world, performing to audiences while also releasing new material.
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".
