The Otay Mesa is east of Tijuana. It will serve as the building site of prototype walls commissioned by the Trump administration. It could also be a staging area for mass protests. Alicia Caldwell is an immigration reporter at the Wall Street Journal, and she spoke to A Martinez about how law enforcement agencies are anticipating large-scale protests as construction begins on the wall prototypes.
A regular day on the job entailed Miguel Ordeñana, a biologist at the Natural History Museum, to look at ... well, a bunch of tail. "I was going through some footage after a long day in the field. I was very impatient," Ordeñana explained, "because I was tired and going through photo after photo of rabbit and deer butt and coyote butt." But on that sunny day in February 2012, one of those tails changed everything. That was how P-22 was discovered to be living in Griffith Park.
On SoCal SoCurious, we answer your questions about how things work in Southern California – and why. This question comes from a listener who only identified himself as Mick. He asked, "Which cities in L.A. County have the fewest native-born Californians?" Before we could even get to it ourselves, another fellow intrepid KPCC listener was on the case. Brianne Gilbert is the associate director of the Thomas and Dorothy Levy center for the study of Los Angeles at Loyola Marymount University.
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".
