Federal funds are now available to help San Diegans who lost property or valuables in the Lilac Fire. A disaster recovery center opened Monday at the Rancho Monserate Country Club to help people file claims. It is run by FEMA and the U.S. Small Business Administration. FEMA said around 70 mobile homes were damaged or completely destroyed at the country club. Homeowners now have to make the tough decision to rebuild or sell their property.
The rally in City Heights comes in response to failed attempts by the White House and Congress to reach a deal for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Ali Torabi spoke during the rally Friday. He moved to the United States in 1995 from Iran before enrolling in DACA. "The second I received DACA I put in my applications. I got accepted into a lot of universities," Torabi said. "I ended up going to my dream school at UCLA. That was all because of DACA.
The 50th Street Community Build Day was organized by the City Heights Community Development Corporation and Hands On San Diego. Most of the volunteers were Ben & Jerry's ice cream franchise owners from around the country. They are in San Diego for an annual meeting — with a side of community service. "Everyone came in on the bus," said Ephraim Mallari, a co-owner of a Ben & Jerry's store in Seaport Village. "There's probably 200 - 300 of us out here."
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".
