It is a Tuesday morning at the Carlsbad police station, and newly appointed ranger Jerry Serafini is getting ready to head out. “This is the park ranger vehicle for the city of Carlsbad," said Serafini. "It is a 2017 Toyota Tacoma, 4x4 off-road vehicle, brand new. We use it to access all of the trails, the parks, the beaches.”Serafini is part of a new ranger pilot program at the Carlsbad Police Department. The program kicked off in July and now has two full-time rangers on their payroll.
When the American Red Cross asked volunteer Marie Sablan to join Harvey relief efforts, she was ready. “When I got the phone call, I knew I had to go," said Sablan. "And my husband and my family know that this is like my calling." A Chula Vista resident, Sablan deployed as a shelter worker in the small town of Sour Lake, about an hour and a half northeast of Houston. She left a week after Hurricane Harvey hit, and spent two weeks in the Midwest.
Drive by Qualcomm Stadium in Mission Valley and you will notice all the major signs taken down — that's because the stadium is getting a new name. When Qualcomm's lease ended in June, the company declined to purchase the naming rights again. Now the City of San Diego is working with San Diego Sports Properties, a division of Fox Sports College Properties, to close a deal. “Small companies, mid-sized companies, national companies were all welcome to submit a bid," said Duke Little.
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".
