If you missed your chance to ski during the July 4 weekend, you’ll have at least one more opportunity at summer skiing in Northern California when Squaw Valley reopens Saturday. The resort announced the reopening on Wednesday. It will mark the first time the resort will be open past the summer holiday. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to stay open. This winter really blessed us and we really excited to go beyond the Fourth of July,” said Sam Kieckhefer, a spokesman for the resort.
The litter of porkers that once called “Pig Island” home – has more than doubled – and is in custody of an animal rights group, which has sued for permanent possession. Farm Sanctuary is caring for six pigs “rescued” earlier this month from the San Joaquin Delta island formally known as Walter’s Island – as well as the 10 pigs born while the swine were in the custody of Calaveras County.
Calaveras County’s website is back up Thursday becoming the latest government website hacked with pro-ISIS propaganda. Wednesday’s hack of the sparely populated mountain community website’s was the latest in a series of apparently similar hacks affecting government websites from Washington state to upstate New York. The website was taken off-line in response to the hack.
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".
