Chico >> The fifth-graders call their elderly friends “grandbuddies,” and on Halloween, they all met to decorate and eat cookies and play games. When Beth Geise’s 28 students arrived at Amber Grove Place, an assisted living facility, it was clear they’d been there before. They didn’t worry about being quiet, because Amber Grove is a familiar, friendly place to them. Geise arranges days throughout the year so her students can develop friendships with the residents at Amber Grove.
Grant and Sky Adams of Chico on Thursday completed a bicycle ride across Nevada and Utah. Long bike rides are nothing new for them. In fact, they have ridden throughout the U.S. several times. They like to ride, but they also make their rides an opportunity to raise money for clean water projects in underdeveloped countries. They started cycling for that reason in 2007.
Chico >> It’s all about supporting and promoting bicycling. Individuals and groups may apply for a grant from Chico Velo Foundation, and the deadline is Oct. 23. Grants are typically $500. Janine Rood, executive director of the Chico Velo Cycling Club, said groups do not have to be nonprofits to apply. “Grants go to organizations and individuals. One example of our grants was to Love Chapman(town) when it did a big project to update a play area at Chapman School.
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".
