While Southern California got some light rain with an overnight storm, it’s starting to look at lot like Christmas up at Mammoth Mountain. The resort reported an estimated 9 inches of snow fell over night, bringing the storm total the past few days to 21 to 42 feet — and it’s still coming down Friday morning. At the summit, an estimated 6 feet came down to cover the mountain top.
The goal was to create a safe haven for sea life off the coast of Malibu so, a few decades ago, people chucked a few hundred toilets into the ocean and called them a reef. In Newport Beach, just a short distance from a harbor filled with million-dollar yachts, the same goal prompted people to build an artificial reef of their own, using thousands of plastic pipes and 1,500 old tires.
Surfers weren’t the only ones scoring some fun waves over the weekend. Photographer Tom Cozad was in just the right place Sunday, Nov. 12, capturing images in Newport Beach of the most recent run of swells to hit the coastline, when a massive dolphin catapulted into the sky above a wave. One lucky surfer paddling back out got a front-row view of the flying dolphin as it caught air and soared.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
