UPPER LAKE >> Richard Powell held court on a bench outside his Main Street antique shop on Tuesday morning, like most days spent passing time in this rustic town set atop Clear Lake. About four months ago, he was perched on the same bench when a man, his wife and three kids walked up, asking if Powell knew a place nearby to rent. The man was Derick Almena, the leader of the Ghost Ship, the Oakland warehouse where 36 people died in a fire about two months earlier.
April 6, 2017, was the deadline, except for small businesses, to begin complying with the Food and Drug Administration’s new regulations on the safe transport of food. (The compliance date for small businesses is April 6, 2018.) FDA was required by the Sanitary Food Transportation Act of 2005 and the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2011 to establish regulations to reduce the risk of food becoming contaminated during transportation.
DOWNEY >> On Saturday night, a wide-grinning, bespectacled hipster dressed in day-glo retrowear will switch on holiday lights wrapped around a space capsule while scores of people swap donuts. Trust us, it all makes perfect sense - when taken in historical context. Historian-humorist Charles Phoenix will touch down in Downey on Saturday from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
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".
