Coroner’s officials are working to identify a man who died when the vehicle he was driving overturned on Highway 101, landed on SMART tracks in Novato and burst into flames. The California Highway Patrol received calls at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday reporting a northbound 1995 Chevy S-10 pickup truck rolled over north of Atherton Avenue. The truck left the freeway, coming to rest on its roof on Sonoma-Marin Area Railroad Transit train tracks, and then caught fire.
Prompted by recent terrorist vehicle attacks on pedestrians, Golden Gate Bridge officials are recommending eliminating the special exemptions that allow events on the span’s roadway. In July, bridge officials made the unprecedented decision to close the northbound lanes of the span during the San Francisco Marathon to keep runners from being side-by-side with vehicle traffic with little protection. The bridge’s median barrier kept runners safe from southbound traffic.
Weary of managing weekend traffic delays, Golden Gate Bridge officials acquired a permit from Caltrans to close Vista Point in Marin to most traffic each weekend through Labor Day. The only way to get to the popular scenic outlook will be by bus — all other vehicles will be forbidden from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. for all Saturdays and Sundays in August, as well as the Labor Day weekend through Sept. 4.
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".
