At least once a year, it’s good to try something new. To get away from it all. To take a chance to “Think BIG.”Because time outside the four walls of one’s “everyday” can be beneficial. Your perspective on life — and how you approach it — is challenged. Honestly, time away from the virtuous tasks of doing the laundry and commuting can be a good thing. Why are we doing the things we are doing? What’s it all about, anyway? Those who travel often say that they find a renewed sense of purpose.
Spending time with fine wines, good books and great music conjures up images of comfortable leather chairs, mahogany bookcases and perfect relaxation. However, if you live along the Highway 50 corridor, additional options exist. This region is wild with activities — especially in early March. The El Dorado Hills Friends of the Library will host a Bridge and Bunco Tournament fundraiser the afternoon of Sunday, March 18 from 12:30-5 at the El Dorado Hills Library.
After the Month of Romance (February), the Folsom Lake Symphony dedicates its March concert to three of the great Romantic composers: Johannes Brahms, Claude Debussy and Sir Edward Elgar. All three men were part of the great movement in the late Victorian era, when the thrill of the industrial age and the birth of the modern age meant that all things were possible for creative minds. The FLS celebrates that spirit with its Glorious Adventure concert on March 24.
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".
