Central Coast Living is more than beautiful scenery and libations - sometimes, it's about politics. Since the 2016 election, vigils, marches and demonstrations have filled the streets of San Luis Obispo. The community of San Luis Obispo has been rich with activism long before the country felt the need to picket. The city elected an activist as mayor in 2016.
The 11th Annual Avocado and Margarita Street Festival takes place in Morro Bay this weekend. The promoters of the event say margaritas pair well with the creamy, fatty avocados which are the main focus of the party. You may be used to dishes like guacamole or avocado toast. You can also try unique dishes such as avocado popsicles or avocado chocolate. Mexico is the world's number one producer of avocados but this festival was created to showcase the avocados grown on the Central Coast.
Gorgeous views of the Corpus Christi Bay are something to expect from the 20th floor of the downtown Holiday Inn. What you may not expect to see is rooms filled with cots for members of the Red Cross and other response agencies. The banquet halls of both the Omni and Holiday Inn have cots made for people affected by Hurricane Harvey. The General Manager of the Holiday Inn, Philip Lawson, showed KRIS 6 News his room that had six cots inside.
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".
