Approximately 100 people came out for the first annual “Women Bike Imperial Beach” hosted by The San Diego County Bike Coalition. “We’re just trying to get people – women – outside. It’s women-focused, but not exclusive,” Skii Fleeton, new membership and marketing coordinator with the coalition, told NBC 7. “We’ve got a dad here with his daughter. We’ve got cousins, husbands, brothers, boyfriends; I’m sure we’ve got everybody here.
Mike Levine, 68, looks like a finely tuned athlete riding through his Carlsbad neighborhood, but a few months ago, he barely had enough strength to cross the street. The retired salesman was diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer in 2015. “I have less than a one percent chance of making it five years, and since the diagnosis, I’m already two and a half years into it,” he said. Pancreatic cancer has the lowest five-year survival rate of any major cancer, and Levine had lost hope.
This Labor Day weekend marks 10 years since the infamous, booze-fueled beach brawl in Pacific Beach. Police showed up and riot gear to calm down the rowdy crowd. The holiday chaos sparked the movement to ban booze at the beach – a ban still hotly debated in the community. “The locals are not the problem; it's the people from out of town, they come here and ruin it for us,” Carl Wade, a longtime Pacific Beach resident, told NBC 7 on Saturday.
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".
