Transportation officials closed an eight-mile stretch of the Angeles Crest Highway after a large sinkhole opened up under the pavement. The two-lane highway, also known as State Route 2, will be closed in both directions between Grassy Hollow Visitors Center and State Route 39 while crews repair the damage from the 10-foot-deep hole, Lauren Wonder, a Caltrans spokeswoman, said Friday.
Visitors to Los Angeles International Airport this weekend will find the towering, lighted pylons at the entrance bathed in the colors of the rainbow in recognition of LGBT pride events. “Los Angeles World Airports is proud to join City Hall and the city of Los Angeles in support of diversity and equality,” Trevor Daley, director of external affairs, said in a news release Friday.
Los Angeles firefighters used a water-dropping helicopter to stop the progress of a brush fire Friday afternoon near the 2100 block of Roscomare Road in Bel-Air.The fire was held to two acres in a canyon near homes in the Westside neighborhood, officials said. No injuries were reported and no structures were damaged, said Margaret Stewart, a department spokeswoman. The cause of the fire had not been determined, she said. email@example.com Twitter: @kchristensenLAT
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".
