Costa Mesa City Council members Tuesday expressed their continued support for a proposed bike trail that would pass partly through Talbert Regional Park, although delays at the county level are expected to cost the city about $1.7 million in grant funding. On a 4-0 vote, the council, with member Jim Righeimer absent, opted to suspend paying consultants for environmental and design work on the portion of the trail that would be in Talbert but continue looking for ways to advance the project.
Costa Mesa City Council members advanced an ordinance Tuesday that would amend the municipal code to prohibit possession of illegal fireworks. The proposed change is meant to give the Police Department another tool to combat the use of those devices, particularly around the Fourth of July.
Costa Mesa City Council members signed off Tuesday on a plan to issue bonds to finance the in-progress makeover of Lions Park and refinance debt taken out a decade ago. The council voted 4-0, with Councilman Jim Righeimer absent, to issue $28.6 million worth of lease revenue bonds, a type of financing cities can use to build new facilities. Those will carry an estimated interest rate of 3.5% and run for a term of 25 years, according to interim Finance Director Stephen Dunivent.
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".
