Best time to view fireballs in the sky will be Saturday into SundayThe sky will light up this weekend across Northern California as the Perseid meteor shower moves through the Earth's atmosphere. For all you late-night owls and stargazers, be sure to head somewhere with very little light on Saturday night and into Sunday morning for the best view of the meteor shower. Sunday morning is supposed to be the optimal time to watch the meteors.
Former Stockton Mayor Anthony Silva agreed to a plea deal Friday in an Amador County court, in which three of his four charges were dropped. Silva pleaded no contest to count 3 of furnishing alcohol to a person under 21 in connection with an investigation involving his conduct in August 2016 at his Stockton youth camp at Silver Lake in Amador. Three other counts were dropped.
A deputy on patrol over the weekend noticed a distraught mother frantically withdrawing money from an ATM. The woman was crying and arguing loudly with family members, who were sitting in a nearby vehicle, the department said. Out of concern, the deputy asked the woman, who was holding a handful of cash, if she was OK or needed help. She appeared extremely frantic and upset, and quickly pushed past the deputy to get to the car and said, "Just get to Safeway."
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".
