Finding Plein Air Waldosby Mark D. CrantzIt’s a who’s dunnit. Next year’s Pageant of the Masters is called “Under the Sun.” Originally named “Painting Under Lamppost,” the show’s title was scratched when the 39 foot styrofoam lamppost of ‘Art & Nature’ had to be barged back to Newport Beach with a super pod of canines giving chase to christen it. However, the new named show will go on and highlight early Laguna plein air artists.
Let’s Make a Toastby Mark D. CrantzI like to save time in the morning by making toast right next to the bathtub. It’s a habit I got into during my working years. I would do my ablution and eat toast at the same time. Got me ahead of the competition. Sure, it was dangerous having the toaster precariously placed on the edge of the bathtub. But my wife didn’t seem to mind this ritual while she bathed. Of course, I would never bathe and toast at the same time. That’s why guys take showers.
Checkout Noonby Mark D. CrantzI tried not to panic over the Indy story “Lawsuit Contests Hotel Laguna Lease.” Hotel operators allege being illegally forced out by the property owners. The property owners counter that checkout is next year at noon. I panicked having just booked my great-great-great granddaughter’s wedding there. The reservation is 99 years and a day from now. Invitations have been sent. The wedding registry is established with the only retailer left standing, Amazon.
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".
