As the San Diego Latino Film Festival kicks off its 25th anniversary season on Thursday, founder and executive Director Ethan Van Thillo looks back on the festival's history. In the early 1990s, Van Thillo came to San Diego from UC Santa Cruz where he had been running a Chicano Film Festival.
For more than 50 years a 200-acre section of South San Diego Bay was cut off from the rest of the bay, choking the natural tidal flow. This part of the bay was in some ways, a dead zone, separated by levees more than 50 years ago for a salt-pond operation. But now those levees have been breached. "First time in 50 years that San Diego Bay has flowed into these ponds and brought them back to life," said Andy Yuen, project leader with the San Diego National Wildlife Refuge.
"Wild Goose Dreams" had its world premiere earlier this month at the La Jolla Playhouse’s Mandell Weiss Forum. The play looks to a pair of displaced people looking to make connections. South Korean playwright Hansol Jung entered the theater world by way of translating Broadway musicals into Korean. As you might expect that provided a skewed lens on the western world. "That’s what I thought America was like, 'My Fair Lady,' 'Oklahoma,' 'Cabaret,'" Jung said.
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".
