Two earthquakes rattled parts of the South Bay early Friday morning. The first, a magnitude-3.0 quake, struck around 4:13 a.m. Its epicenter was 4.5 miles away from Gilroy, 8 miles away from Watsonville and 10 miles away from Morgan Hill, the USGS reported. Shortly thereafter — around 4:32 a.m. — a magnitude-2.6 temblor hit 5.5 miles away from Gilroy, 10.2 miles away from Hollister and 14 miles away from Morgan Hill, according to the USGS. There have been no reports of injuries or damage so far.
A major swath of the North Bay is burning under a reddened sky and blanket of smoke. It’s been a time of darkness – both literally and figuratively – for thousands, but, five days in, the resilience of the human spirit is showing itself. Uplifting hashtags from fire zones throughout wine country began popping up on social media on Friday. Marin County Parks took to Twitter to send Sonoma #LoveFromMarin.
The Sonoma Raceway on Wednesday opened its 50-acre campground to people fleeing from an assortment of wildfires on a ruinous march across a broad swath of wine country. Officials posted a picture of a hazy sky, writing, "Smokey but safe here @racesonoma. We have opened up our 50 Acres campground for evacuees." The raceway, which has enough space to accommodate up to 2,000 campers during major event, is offering its largest campground to evacuees in RVs, starting Wednesday afternoon.
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".
