Chico >> For years, there has been confusion over who owns Chico’s parks. There are parks owned and maintained by the city, like Bidwell Park. There are parks owned and operated by the Chico Area Recreation and Park District, like Community Park off East 20th Street. There are park areas owned by the city but operated by CARD, like Sycamore Field for softball in lower Bidwell Park and Hooker Oak Recreation Area off Manzanita Avenue, which has softball and children’s playgrounds.
Chico >> Women in business have proven themselves on many levels in the work arena, but one of the most challenging may be money, according to one of the speakers at the Women in Business conference later this month. As a coach to women in business, Deborah Osgood finds there often is a need to tackle their understanding of finances, not because they lack the basics to make good choices but because of their upbringing and the monetary messages they picked up as children.
Chico >> Coffee lovers will still be able to stream to the corner of East Second and Main streets downtown for their coffee, even when the current coffee retailer leaves. Chico Coffee Co. plans to go into the building, according to company co-owner Jennifer Silva of Chico. Peet’s Coffee decided not to renew its lease downtown, according to building owner David Halimi, who said the lease expires Dec. 31. Halimi said a lease has not yet been signed, but that Chico Coffee is the expected tenant.
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".
