You've probably passed by them — old, abandoned public buildings that have over the years become part of the city's landscape. Perhaps they are brought to mind when a newcomer points them out, questioning the blight in an otherwise picturesque panorama. You'd never know, until you step inside, the stories these buildings have to tell. Long-neglected, the interiors are post-apocalyptic scenes of decaying architecture and abandoned equipment.
Santa Barbara suffers no shortage of wonderful ways to spend a summer evening. But the picnic concerts performed at the Music Academy of the West are the most lyrical. Pleasure begins even before the music does, as concertgoers arrive with food to spread out on the lush grounds of a Spanish colonial revival estate, surely one of the most gorgeous picnic spots in Southern California. Tables, chairs, and umbrellas are provided; come early―the grounds open at 5 p.m.―for the best seats.
Compared to some other parts of the country, there's not a lot of evidence that Louisiana politics has changed much in the age of Donald Trump.Louisiana isn't dotted with shuttered factories in small towns, the kind of places where swing voters who once gave Barack Obama a chance abandoned Hillary Clinton in droves. Immigration isn't a front-burner issue.
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".
