Hero: Tax forms are daunting documents and many people miss out on earned credits and deductions because they can’t afford professional tax preparation. The Marin AARP Tax-Aide program comes to the rescue by providing free income tax services for seniors and low- to moderate-income taxpayers. Want to make a difference in your community and be part of the rewarding program that assisted more than 2,000 Marin residents this past tax season? Volunteer.
On the same day that a Tiburon man murdered a doe and her fawn for eating in his yard, a person attempted to asphyxiate kittens on a boat in San Rafael. Tiburon police responded to a call of gunfire early Saturday morning, September 2, and found two deer seriously injured by a pellet gun. After a protracted period of suffering, both the mother and her baby succumbed to their wounds and died on the scene.
Hero: Pristine Marin has a dirty little secret. Litter. Take a walk near the shoreline and you’ll find cigarette butts, plastic bottles and aluminum cans. Let’s get off our tushies and do something about it by volunteering with Marin County Parks for California Coastal Cleanup Day on Saturday, September 16, from 9am until noon. Sure, picking up litter for three hours isn’t glamorous, but they’re offering perks, like a free BBQ lunch and the chance to enter a raffle for great prizes.
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".
