Budget cuts or more revenue? Or both? The choice isn’t as simple as that, but Cambria’s health district trustees spent part of their January meeting talking about various combinations of those options. Afterward, they voted 5-0 to hire a consultant, at a cost not to exceed $4,000, to help them navigate the process. They also decided unanimously to set a meeting for sometime in February to receive public input on the issue.
An agriculture position at Coast Union High School might not be eliminated after all. Science/ag teacher Cyndie Wilson was one of five teachers to accept offers of early retirement as Coast Unified School District wrestles with the task of trimming its budget. But many in a packed board room Thursday night, Jan. 11, told the board they wanted to see the position filled.
What’s it like to have your vacation interrupted by a missile alert? Just ask some Cambria residents who were on the islands when text messages went out Saturday warning of an imminent attack. Author and conservationist Bill Seavey was vacationing on Oahu when the alert went out. “For three days we were in a condo that had a bed bug problem, so we frantically moved, and 24 hours later while having breakfast we got the missile alert on our phones,” Seavey wrote in an email to The Cambrian.
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".
