LAKE COUNTY >> It has a very detailed cheetah face painted on one of its sides and it had been sitting on a desk for almost two weeks at the Record-Bee. It’s a medium-sized rock, first dropped off on the corner of a window ledge of the building. But there was no sight of who or why this carefully decorated rock was placed on its little nook in an almost safe, yet daunting manner as if wanting to be seen, but not entirely.
LAKE COUNTY >> On Monday, a total solar eclipse will cross the United States from coast to coast, a natural phenomenon that will leave millions of people in impermanent darkness. For the first time since 1979, North America will experience one of the biggest astronomical events, making it the “most photographed, most shared, most tweeted event in human history,” according to University of Redlands professor and astronomer Tyler Nordgren.
CLEAR LAKE >> Connor Patrick Breen Spence, 23, swam for his life over a span of about nine hours after falling off a wave runner he and some friends rented from Disney’s Water Sports in Lakeport on Friday afternoon. Spence had come from Napa with Becca Erin Trombler, 25, and two other companions for an afternoon of water sports activities in Clear Lake. The four friends had rented two jet skis and they had coordinated to ride two per ski, according to a personnel from Disney’s.
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".
