A day of fun on the mountain turns into a deadly plot filled with kidnappings, mystery and a race against the clock in local author Jennifer Quashnick's newest Mountaingirl Mysteries novel, "Sierra Nevada Dangerous Developments." The third installment in the series debuted on Saturday, Dec. 16, and the action-packed story is filled with suspense and non-stop surprises as heroine Rachel Winters must hunt down the culprits who are after her and her closest friends.
The Fresh Ketch finds itself in an interesting situation. The long-time bar and restaurant closed on Jan. 1 for the winter, a departure from previous years when it stayed open year round. The current owners plan on renovating the space and taking inventory. Fresh Ketch is targeting a mid-April reopening, that is unless the space is leased, said Diana Drinkard, bookkeeper for LT Food and Spirits, the business name on file with the California Secretary of State, and the Tahoe Keys Marina.
Snow is somewhat of a stranger in the basin thus far into the winter. And paired with the three-day weekend that lies ahead, it seems that there's nothing to do to pass the time in the region (because, let's face it, who wants to ski or ride in these conditions?). However, that's where you're wrong: From catching the NFL playoff games to hanging out at local up-and-coming breweries and more, there are plenty of things to do off the mountain this time of year.
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".
