More than 60 people took to the winding roads of West Marin on Saturday to visit the Poncia family’s ranch, tucked among the rolling hills near Tomales. Though Loren and Lisa Poncia, of Novato, did not know many of the faces that showed up at their Stemple Creek Ranch, they said they love hosting good gatherings. It was also about giving people a glimpse into their business, producing grass-fed beef and lamb.
A fire at Hall Middle School in Larkspur caused tens of thousands in damage late Tuesday, authorities said. The fire was reported just before midnight by the Central Marin Police Authority, located next to the school campus at 200 Doherty Drive. The blaze was extinguished within a few minutes, said Larkspur fire Battalion Chief Don Stasiowski. The fire started in a Dumpster outside of the gymnasium. The flames extended from the debris box to a wall, eventually reaching the eaves of the roof.
Moviegoers at Novato’s Century Rowland Plaza theater may soon be able to sip on beer and wine while catching a flick. City staff will consider issuing a use permit allowing the theater at 44 Rowland Way to sell beer and wine at a zoning administrator public hearing at 2 p.m. Thursday at City Hall. The city must sign off on the permit before the officials with the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control consider the proposal.
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".
