The smoke east of Mammoth near the Sherwin Range today, Nov. 30, is due to a fire crews burning piles of logs and brush that have been stacked up and cured during the summer months. The piles were cut and stacked during the summer as a way to thin the forest, thereby making it less likely to burn in a wildfire during the hot summer months.
Although the federal government under the Trump administration has cut the ‘open enrollment’ period to sign up for the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) in half this year, Mono County residents will have until Jan. 31, 2018 to sign up. That is because the state of California, as blue of a state as the map allows, has kept its open enrollment window open much longer than the Dec. 15 deadline set by the feds, under the state’s version of Obamacare, which is called Covered California.
The full repercussions of the Las Vegas mass shooting on Mammoth and Eastern Sierra residents might never be obvious but it will, inevitably, be profound nevertheless. At least several dozen Eastside residents appear to have been at the concert or in Las Vegas the night of Oct. 1. At least a few of them were shot and/or injured during the shooting, although none fatally.
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".
