Surfing, music and giving came together at the 13th annual Bro-Am Festival in Encinitas Saturday. The concert and surf competition, hosted annually by San Diego-based rock band Switchfoot, raises money for homeless and at-risk youth. “Getting out with the kids and pushing them into waves and riding waves ... [and] pushing them ... beyond their boundaries and just seeing the smiles and the excitement makes it all worthwhile,” San Diego surfing legend Rob Machado told NBC 7.
A new municipal code recycling ordinance requiring food waste to only be collected by the City’s licensed haulers is threatening to shut down some food recycling businesses in San Diego. "They were saying no small guys could haul food waste any longer,” says Briana Young, co-owner of Closing the Loop, a food recycling business. “I would've been out of business July 1." Young has been hauling food waste from 80 local restaurants for the last five years to keep it from going into landfills.
“A very small amount ingested or absorbed through your skin can kill you," Jack Riley of the DEA says. Riley is referring to fentanyl, a drug 40 to 50 times more powerful than heroin. Now San Diego first responders are going through new training on how to handle fentanyl, a drug that can cause an accidental overdose simply by touching or breathing it in. That’s what nearly happened to a New Jersey Police Officer when he came in contact with the synthetic opioid.
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".
