Bestselling author Don Winslow, who lives in Julian, has been the talk of the book world this week since his new novel, “The Force,” was published Tuesday. In a Q&A with the author, Union-Tribune reporter John Wilkens writes that “The Force” is a “piercing, profane, morally complex epic about the line police departments walk — and sometimes cross — when they set out to keep a community safe.”Winslow’s 20th book, based in New York, is about Denny Malone, a good cop gone bad.
It was a simple question: If you weren’t a musician, what would you be right now? For Andrew Bain, the answer came quickly. “I think I’d be a basketball referee or coach or a professional golfer,” he said matter-of-factly. “In my dreams, that’s what I would be doing — some kind of sport.”You can blame it on the Australian-born musician’s genes: His mother played basketball for the Australian national team, and both his mother and his father played lacrosse internationally.
The San Diego Symphony said Tuesday that its 2016-17 downtown season has set a new sales record, with the Jacobs Masterworks classical series bringing in a total that’s 15.6 percent higher than last year’s. Combined with the orchestra’s 2016 Bayside Summer Nights outdoor series at Embarcadero Marina Park South, the symphony also set an overall record for the number of paid admissions for an entire fiscal year with 154,614 tickets sold.
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".
