The city is throwing its support behind small businesses by asking residents to shop small. In recognition of Small Business Saturday on Nov. 25, the city has created a video and planned other promotional activities encouraging shoppers to stay local when picking out holiday gifts this season. “My desire, as the mayor, is to get people to do all of their Christmas shopping in the city of Redlands,” said Mayor Paul Foster.
Applicants for the vacant Redlands City Council seat face an intensely condensed process next week when they make their case in public. The council will interview the dozen residents who have applied for the seat, vacant since the Oct. 3 death of Councilwoman Pat Gilbreath, at its meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 21, at City Hall, 35 Cajon St. The appointee will be sworn in immediately for a one-year term since the seat will be on the ballot in November 2018 and again in November 2020.
Just three of the Redlands City Council’s four members will interview applicants for the vacant seat next week. Councilman Paul Barich plans to recuse himself from much of the process, due to a potential conflict of interest. One of the applicants, Ann Davis-Schultz, has previously conducted business with Barich. “As much as I’m going to miss the initial interviews, I have to stay within the law,” Barich said Friday. “That’s the way I’ve always done. There’s never been any gray area.
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".
