The configuration of a piece of a busy Vista intersection near state Route 78 will be redone, as the city makes room for a new car dealership. The triangle-shaped island on southbound Vista Village Drive at westbound Vista Way will be ripped out. The land where the median sits, as well as the curved right-turn lane it carves out, will be gobbled up by a Honda dealership. The right-turn lane will be relocated a few feet to the south, and will become a hard right angle, Vista city officials said.
A bid to let Vista voters decide whether to allow at least 10 medical marijuana dispensaries in the city continues to progress, with backers of the citizens’ initiative collecting far more signatures than needed to force the matter onto the ballot. But just how many of the signers are valid registered voters remains to be seen. Vista currently forbids dispensaries.
As June raced to a close, Rhonda Amey was scared. Come July 1, she had to vacate her rented room, and she and her teenage son would have no place to live. The call from Operation Hope Vista came with about two days to spare. The shelter for homeless families had a room available — and Amey could breathe again. “Without them right now, I don’t know where my son and I would be,” the 52-year-old said Friday. A little more than a year ago, no such call would have come, at least not until November.
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".
