If Cal State Fullerton mascot Tuffy Titan is looking a little long in the tusk, just wait until you see the new elephant in town. Cal State Fullerton is about to receive a woolly mammoth skeleton about 20,000 years old. The giant fossil will be installed this fall in a permanent display in the Titan Student Union. John Gregg, a Huntington Beach geotechnical engineer, and his Gregg Family Foundation have donated the extinct mammoth skeleton to the university.
Early 2017 witnessed a first: the closing of a Nordstrom store in Orange County. The 29-year-old MainPlace store in Santa Ana closed due partly to performance issues, the Seattle-based retailer told the Register. But Register readers, who voted the chain No. 1, needn’t worry. There are five remaining full-line Nordstrom stores in the county, plus seven Nordstrom Racks, including a new location in Tustin. And the chain extensively remodeled its South Coast Plaza store this year.
Seeing the devastation that Hurricanes Harvey and Irma inflicted, it’s tempting to take solace that Southern California escapes anything but the rare remnant of a tropical storm. But that doesn’t mean we’re spared flooding, reminded two Cal State Fullerton geologists in the wake of Harvey and Irma. Our water events might not have names, but they can wreak havoc on our beaches, canyons and low-lying communities. Just ask anyone who lived here in 1938.
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".
