Even as San Diego’s still healthy economy enters its eighth year of growth, local economists say they are increasingly wary of a coming slowdown, possibly as early as next year or in 2020. In a wide-ranging economic roundtable hosted Thursday by the University of San Diego School of Business, two of the panelists raised the question of how much longer can one of the longest expansions endure.
SeaWorld is on pace to open this summer its fastest, tallest coaster yet, with the topping-off Wednesday of the steel track installation. What is Electric Eel? Planned for a 1.2-acre site, the coaster is designed as a combination of loops, twists and a nearly 150-foot-high ascent followed by an inverted roll that will give riders what SeaWorld says is the only upside-down view of Mission Bay. During the one-minute ride, the speed will top out at 62 mph.
In the year since the Chargers announced they were leaving San Diego behind for Los Angeles, bar owners, sports retailers and hotels say they’ve felt an economic pinch, but the tourism economy remains strong. When the news broke a year ago that the Chargers were officially Los Angeles-bound, there were plenty of grief-stricken fans but little angst among economists and tourism pros about San Diego taking a financial hit.
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".
