"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.
New marijuana laws will soon go into effect, and the city of Oceanside is among those considering how to regulate the cultivation of cannabis. For some San Diego County farmers struggling to stay in business with rising water bills and higher labor costs, there are potential profits from the newly legalized crop. Mike Mellano’s family has been farming in Morro Hills in north Oceanside for more than 40 years.
A tropical paradise is sweeping over the La Jolla Playhouse with the premiere of "Escape To Margaritaville," a Broadway-bound musical dedicated to the beloved songs of Jimmy Buffett. The legendary singer-songwriter was in San Diego this week to promote the show. “First of all the show is funny and it’s a great story that weaves through these songs that were never intended in my mind to be together,” said Buffett, who has worked on the musical for four years.
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".
