A program offering home loans to California veterans could become an unexpected casualty of federal tax reform. The tax bill currently making its way through the Republican-controlled House of Representatives would eliminate the type of bond funding that allows California's Department of Veterans Affairs, or CalVet, to issue veteran home loans, putting a nearly century-old program in jeopardy at a time when voters are being asked to extend it.
After a district court judge temporarily halted President Trump's ban on transgender people serving in the U.S. military on Monday, one transgender veteran in Orange County applauded the decision. Fifty-five-year-old Marsha Evelyn Morgan of San Clemente was a sonar technician for fast attack submarines in the Navy from 1990-96. When she served in the Persion Gulf on the USS Topeka during Desert Shield and Desert Storm, "the lives of 130 crew depended on my ears.
Kevin Ziober’s last day at the office started with a sheet cake. A red and blue American flag was iced on the top with tiny, sugary stars, and the inscription read, "Best Wishes Kevin." He remembers co-workers stood up to give him a round of applause, and his office was decorated with camouflage netting. "I was humbled by the outpouring of support," Ziober said of the early 2013 surprise party. As a Navy Reserve Lieutenant, he was headed to Afghanistan for a year-long deployment.
When I was a baby @KIRORadio newsdesk intern, Dan ruled the morning news with an iron fist. His zest for prose & glee at a clever interview zinger are part of the reason I fell in love with making radio. He’s one of the few people I’d trust in a zombie apocalypse. Love ya, ‘Kevs. https://t.co/JAMV1YHExe
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".
