I couldn’t believe it. Huell Howser was dead. I was in shock when I first heard it, I’m still in shock now as I write this. But as I look back at our last several conversations, they take on a more serious tone. “I’m tired, Steve,” Huell told me. “I want to retire.”Now I know why. Suddenly his carefully planned gift giving made more sense. He knew he wasn’t going to be taking it with him.
From a Hole in the GroundThat’s the last half of a phrase many of us are familiar with, and unfortunately, it appears to apply rather well to the folks of the County of San Bernardino Economic Development Agency when it comes to the topic of tourism. Despite a 2011 "fam" tour where staff from the EDA’s "tourism division" (They have a tourism division?)
As The Real Desert, with Steve Brown prepares its second exciting season for PBS, a new series is in the works as well: The Real Route 66. During my work in cultural heritage tourism development for the desert region, and my three and a half years volunteering as president of the California Deserts Visitors Association, I met a lot of incredible people. One was Jim Conkle, one of the top leading authorities on Route 66 preservation, history, and culture.

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".
