Workers are racing to repair a damaged tunnel underneath downtown Santa Rosa that took a beating during this past winter’s record rainfall. Since 1963, when the flood control project was built, Santa Rosa Creek has been confined to two underground concrete box culverts running for 1,400 feet under downtown. The 14-foot-tall tunnels begin at E Street and run beneath the U.S. Bankruptcy Court building and Santa Rosa City Hill, where they are joined by a third tunnel conveying Matanzas Creek.
Sebastopol residents expressed outrage and bewilderment Tuesday that one of their most vulnerable residents was killed last month in a crosswalk where the speed limit was increased in 2008 following a community effort to get it reduced. The Sebastopol City Council held a town hall meeting Tuesday to explain how speed limits are set and to give the public a chance to share their ideas in the wake of two major back-to-back accidents on busy city streets.
Alan Hatherly’s silver medal in the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships in Cairns, Australia, at the weekend was the outstanding moment in a competition that produced a few "what-if" moments for SA. Hatherly finished second in the under-23 cross-country race on Friday, just 11sec behind New Zealand’s Sam Gaze, with Germany’s Maximilian Brandl third. It was SA’s best result in the cross-country world championships since the late Burry Stander won the under-23 title in 2009.
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".
