Each year in December Solvang transforms into a Christmas town with plenty of free and fun activities for the family for Julefest. "I can see Santa in the village. I can go caroling on Saturdays and do a historical candlelit tour around town," said Tracy Farhad of the Solvang Conference & Visitors Bureau. Farhad recommends starting the adventures at the visitor center. There people can get a map of events and a treasure hunt for Danish elves called "nisse". "You can come and find them.
Workplace accommodations. Two words that often spark fear in the eyes of business leaders and human resource professionals. But why? Is it the complex regulatory framework and bevy of conflicting case law? Or maybe it’s the unfamiliar territory and potential litigation threat.
A shift in the housing market is expected in the near future for San Luis Obispo. Cal Poly students and their parents make up a big chunk of the renters and buyers in SLO, which is why realtors expect a shift in the housing market with any announcement of new developments of student housing. Earlier this year, Cal Poly released a video on how to pronounce the future seven dorms on campus, as well as a master plan for off-campus student housing over the next two decades.
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".
