RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. - It was a girl's day out for hundreds of middle schoolers across the Coachella Valley. The fourth annual Rae of Hope Leadership Retreat, founded by KESQ News Channel 3 anchor Bianca Rae, took place in Indian Wells. "I wanted to come here so I could have the experience because I knew the retreat was going to change something in me," said Arlette Vanezuela, who is in the sixth grade. Four years ago, the event started with 100 girls. It has since bloomed to more than 500.
PALM SPRINGS, Calif. - The first responder who rescued a mother and her son moments before their car was swept away by flood water gives his first-hand account of the situation. It's hard to imagine what Gold Center Drive in Palm Springs looked like on Saturday, but by Monday there was hardly any water left at all.
RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. - Seven mature trees were uprooted and three more compromised at the Children's Discovery Museum of the Desert in Rancho Mirage following recent storms in the Coachella Valley. Staff told KESQ News Channel 3 and CBS Local 2's Katie Widner that the initial damage was done during a storm on Thursday afternoon. Saturday's record-breaking microburst made matters even worse. Five trees in the parking lot were down, causing a large area to be sectioned off for safety.
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".
