Carmel >> At the end of the day, it was a lion that took home the top prize at Saturday’s 57th annual Great Sandcastle Contest at Carmel Beach. A group of employees from Whitson Engineers of Monterey and family members and friends won the Golden Shovel award. Their creation, titled “Lion in the Sand,” featured a male lion lying down eating a fish. It’s mane was made of seaweed, it’s tail of bull kelp and its eyes, nose and fangs created from seaweed pieces.
Carmel >> There’s not much Charlotte Townsend hasn’t done in her 92 years, and the former Carmel mayor is not through yet. “If I can be useful, I think that’s what keeps me going,” she said during an interview at her Carmel cottage. Up until a year ago, Townsend was taking tennis lessons. She continues to sit on boards and attend board meetings, and she still drives her prized Porsche, on occasion. For many, Townsend is known as the Carmel mayor who Clint Eastwood defeated in 1986.
SALINAS >> Two Hartnell College students expressed their hopes and fears Saturday about President Trump’s order to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program at a news conference called by Rep. Jimmy Panetta. Katherine Hernandez, originally from El Salvador, and Adriana Gonzalez, formerly of Mexico, spoke after opening statements by Panetta. About 60 people attended the event at the Salinas community college.
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".
