West of Dorst Creek Campground lies one of the most intriguing spots in the Lodgepole/Giant Forest area. Atop a wooded knoll in the midst of a 215-acre sequoia grove, a nearly circular arrangement of giants surrounds an open clearing. This arrangement evokes numerous possibilities to vivid imaginations. Could this have been a Native American meeting place? Is this an Entmoot that became frozen in time?
Since December of 2014, I have been conducting field work for a full revision and update of Jerry Schadâ€™s hiking guide, Afoot and Afield in San Diego County. With one hike remaining (Dawnâ€™s Peak/Peak 6582), I estimate that I have now hiked over 1600 miles of distinct trail and terrain in the county, with about 1,420 miles of that represented in the book. Part of my work included hiking every inch of those 1,420 miles to determine what had changed and what was new.
On a late afternoon at the end of August, we drove north out of Providence to deliver our daughter, Rachel, to the University of Vermont for her sophomore year. It's about a four-hour trip and a sad one for us parents. Four of us go (Rachel's brother, Noah, comes along), but only three of us return.
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".
