When the rains come, Tijuana’s sewage system often is overwhelmed. Then a noxious tide flows through the Tijuana River Valley and into the sea at Border Field State Park. The Surfrider Foundation’s San Diego chapter has been campaigning for clean water at this beach for years. Among its staunchest allies? Breweries. Case in point: Cerveza Imperial’s late-summer fundraiser at the California Surf Museum in Oceanside.
Being the county’s oldest beer festival doesn’t impress many people, or even many breweries. “The competition for festivals is harder and harder every year,” said Russ Novak, the event’s brewery coordinator. “This year we put out a concerted effort, tried to get as many local breweries as we could.”While sheer longevity may not persuade many breweries to show up, this festival’s cause does.
On an East Village sidewalk Monday afternoon, three nurses unpack supplies beside a man slumped over a shopping cart. The man looks up. “The Hep A shot?” he asks. “Where do I get it?”“Right here!” says Paulina Bobenrieth, one of the nurses. “We want to protect you.”Among San Diego County’s estimated 9,100 homeless people, word is out about hepatitis A. Traced back to a single diagnosis last November, the outbreak is now a full-blown crisis.
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".
