MCCLELLAN -- The latest and biggest firefighting tool the State of California has against raging wildfires is based in Sacramento. McClellan Air Force Base is home to a Global Supertanker Boeing 747 supertanker, the only one in use in the United States. The plane is massive. It's also very busy at the height of the 2017 fire season. It came to Northern California just a week ago to help with the destructive Ponderosa Fire.
SACRAMENTO -- Firefighters in Sacramento battled several fires and hot temperatures Thursday afternoon. Three separate fires started, all in the same vicinity, all within about an hour of one another. "While these are not big fires, the excessive heat is a potential danger to our crews and to the public," said spokesman Roberto Padilla.
FORESTHILL -- Republican Representative Tom McClintock held a town hall meeting in Foresthill Thursday night. The meeting came on the heels of the defeat of the health care bill and President Donald Trump's remarks about Charlottesville. Sounds of "Silent Night" could be heard from the crowd before Rep. McClintock took the stage Thursday night inside the Foresthill High gym. But the hundreds in attendance were anything but silent when it came to addressing the congressman about recent events.
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".
