WOODLAND -- Piles of unused lumber and gently used wood materials are piling up at the Yolo County Landfill, but instead of burning it or letting it go to waste, the landfill has created a reuse option. The wood has been put aside at the landfill for customers to buy at very low prices. Thai Lee does woodworking as a hobby and has already come out four or five times since the program started six months ago. "It's such a waste when these woods are so new, and you can do so much with it," Lee said.
SACRAMENTO — A multipurpose business building in the Rosemont neighborhood has been destroyed in a 3-alarm fire Thursday morning. Sacramento Metro Fire got the call for a fire burning on Explorer Drive and Lincoln Village Drive near Bradshaw Road around 1 a.m. Thursday. At first, crews believed the building was vacant but they realized some businesses were still operating in the building as people began to show up for work. No one was injured in the fire.
SACRAMENTO -- Firefighters lit a Christmas tree during a controlled burn demonstration, and within 10 seconds, the flames had reached the ceiling and smoke quickly filled the home. The point of Thursday's exercise was to show how quickly fire can spread. When it starts at the bottom of the tree, it's at about 300 to 500 degrees and it ignites. When it gets to the top of a flashover fire, it can get anywhere from 900 to 1100 degrees.
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".
