Instead of driving several hours to the mountains, families will have the chance this week to play in the snow in downtown San Luis Obispo. Snow Night will return to the downtown Farmers Market on Thursday from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Chorro and Higuera streets, according to the nonprofit Downtown SLO. The family-friendly event is free and open to the public. Children of any age are invited to sled down the sledding hill. A play area also will be designated for children ages 5 and under.
A Grover Beach mother who was deported to Mexico this month is struggling to adjust to her new life in a crime-ridden section of downtown Acapulco — a community she left more than 25 years ago to escape poverty. Neofita Valerio-Silva, 47, said she is now living with her sister and her family members in a cramped house in the heart of her hometown. She’s afraid to go out at night in a community that has seen Mexico’s highest murder rates in recent years.
A former San Luis Obispo planning commissioner says he was forced out of his seat in mid-November because of what he believes was a divide with two City Council members on how to address new development in the city. Scott Mann said he worked diligently as a volunteer planning commissioner during an eight-month tenure to ensure proposed development projects were avoiding or mitigating environmental impacts to the city’s traffic, air quality, flood zones, biology and other issues under state law.
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".
