BENICIA >> Valero Refinery has called off plans to purchase two petroleum terminals in Martinez and Richmond, the company announced on Monday. The Martinez terminal, owned by Plains All American Pipeline, is the last independently owned storage and distribution terminal in Northern California not already controlled by a refinery.
The steep embankment that trails along the Coach Lane side of Rindler Creek is something out of “Wind in the Willows,” leading to tall reeds shooting out of the water and shady canopies of shrubs, vines, and trees that hide much of it from view. Around the bend along Fairgrounds Drive, the creek is a bit deeper and wider, but nonetheless verdant. It’s also a bit of a dumping ground for trash and debris, with garbage clogging the aquatic plants and dangerous particulates that can poison wildlife.
“Opa!” yelled a reveler at the Greek Festival held at the Saints Constantine and Helen Orthodox Church in Vallejo on Saturday. It’s easy to yell “opa!” after diving into delicious foods like spanakopita, gyros, fried calamari, and baklava. But when the live band strikes up authentic Greek music and dancers hit the floor, well, it’s all one can do not to cry out and break a few plates. Fr.
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".
