HUMBOLDT – Humboldt County is taking action to comply with a state law requiring expedited permitting for electric vehicle charging stations and Supervisor Mike Wilson has described it as a first step toward electric switchover. “It’s the minimum and I think we need to start talking about what we can do, beyond streamlining the permit process, to actually encourage implementation and construction of these charging stations,” he said during the Sept. 12 Board of Supervisors meeting.
If you’ve ever had to write a book report, you may, like me, find that nothing takes the fun out of something like having to critique it. Lately, I’ve been feeling that reviewing theatre is deeply unfair. It involves nitpicking a single performance – there usually isn’t time to see more than one before deadline. It’s emotionally difficult to critique the work of people in your community, people you admire, many of whom are working for very little, if any, compensation.
ARCATA – Do you worry that government won’t do enough to protect us from a changing climate? Wondering how your life would look if you downsized your personal carbon footprint, or if it’s even possible? In this series of six meetings, led by Patrick Carr, we consider the practical options for reducing climate- changing pollution from our Humboldt lifestyles.
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".
