SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — If you’re planning on going out for a run this weekend, get ready for some hot weather and smoky skies. Thursday brought unhealthy levels of particulate matter in some areas in the valley, including the Vacaville area. The recent uptick in wildfires has brought poor breathing conditions to much of the area. “The air quality is being affected by smoke right now.
SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — The big show is coming up here on Monday, so where are you going to watch it? There are many local locations that offer some free eclipse glasses and fun booths for kids. The Capitol Lawn will have NASA ambassadors, educational booths for kids and some solar eclipse glasses. The Arthur F. Turner Library has 150 eclipse glasses given to them by NASA for the first visitors to the watch party.
SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Solar eclipse glasses are either really hard to find or really expensive now that we are one week out from the big day. One way to get around having to find some would be the good old fashion method of using a homemade contraption to view the reflection of the sun instead. One method is by using two pieces of paper. You make a pinhole in one paper, then place the other full sheet of paper on the ground.
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".
