This Thanksgiving dinner, served al fresco, came with all the traditional trimmings — including football games broadcast on a big screen. On Thursday, Nov. 23, Operation Warm Wishes rolled out its ninth annual holiday feast in Tustin’s Peppertree Park. Some 200 celebrants included families in need as well as people simply looking for a place to enjoy Thanksgiving. Seated beneath a long canopy, guests chose from a cornucopia of food — turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, the works.
What are the folks at DK’s Donuts thankful for this year? Top on the list: The firefighters who battled the Canyon Fire 2 as it headed toward North Tustin. So a few days before Thanksgiving, owner Mao Ly decided to deliver a few dozen donuts to two Orange County Fire Authority stations in Tustin — one down the street from his shop on Irvine Boulevard and the other on Kensington Park Drive. But perhaps donuts weren’t even the main attraction.
You can get your mall fix on Black Friday. Cyber Monday, surf the web for good deals. But sandwiched in between is Small Business Saturday — so earmark Nov. 25 for shopping locally. Mom-and-pop enterprises, after all, are what give a community its sparkle. And Tustin has plenty of sparkle, especially during the holidays. We spent a grueling — OK, fun — day poking around for gift ideas. We’ll start at the Enderle Center, a sprawling emporium with awkward parking but elegant stores.
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".
