Chico >> It never hurts to have a good idea get a little air. That’s the attitude the Center for Entrepreneurship carries, according to Director Peter Straus. “We want to hear ideas, to see what people are thinking about,” says Straus, who has roots in private enterprise locally before starting with the center at Chico State University’s College of Business.
Chico >> An aging and outdated supply of private student housing in Chico has spurred a huge investment in new properties, evidenced by at least four projects on the west side of the city. Modern Building of Chico put the finishing touches on the 39-unit Cedar Flats apartments earlier this month and there’s already a waiting list, according to Modern project manager Phil Strawn, who provided a glimpse of a new age of student housing this week.
Chico >> Chico Community Observatory won’t be hosting astronomical fans to check out the Great American Eclipse on Aug. 21 because most of its docents are heading to Oregon to watch the show. Nevertheless, there are opportunities here for the 2.5 minute morning glimpse, from DIY pinhole shows to what the internet holds. Chico observatory director Bill Koperwhats warns that without legitimate viewing glasses or alternative plan, eye damage can occur, so don’t look at the sun.
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".
