- Come summer many in the Bay Area wonder: Will there be water restrictions? Probably not. Lake Shasta, the state's biggest reservoir, is exactly at teh level it should be this time of year based on historical averages. Don Pedro reservoir is 115% of normal. McClure- 126% and New Melones 129%. All of them have a lot more storage capacity with more storms coming. That's good news for California's reservoirs where rain is a welcome sight.
- Aluminum is one of the most versatile metals on earth and its use increases every year, including in many enterprises and products right here in the Bay Area. 21st Amendment artisan craft beer brewery is large for a small brewer and expects to put out 30 million cans of brew this year. Without those cans, the no bottling, canning only company, could not sell its creations far and wide to a growing audience of craft brew lovers.
- In the same way consumers eventually had to pay sales taxes on internet purchases, it looks like Uber and Lyft riders are heading for a tax on their trips. Other major cities have been assessing such taxes for a while or already have them in place. Now, Oakland and San Francisco are looking at it. The question is: could such taxes result in far fewer ride share cars to serve you?
Though the collapsed Florida Bridge is similar to the #SFBayBridge and #TransbayBusBridge, ours were built with much better methods. Someone(s) in Florida are in deep trouble. Story at 5p on #KTVU.

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".
