It was red, it was shiny and it was high off the ground on the second floor with nothing around it but hope. Hope that the lingering effects of the Great Recession would leave for good. Hope that the housing market would rebound. Hope that Americans would shop again. The Collection may have had a slow start, but as the holiday season arrives and the weekend parking spaces fill up, most visitors don’t think about those early days of a fenced-off ghost town.
The north Oxnard community of RiverPark is entering its tween years. Like a child on the cusp of adolescence, the neighborhood has seen significant changes but still has more growing to do. It's no longer stealing the show; there are newer homes, newer stores elsewhere. But as the neighborhood approaches build out, it still grabs attention. On its way to becoming a success story for the city and the region, RiverPark bumped into the Great Recession and hurt some feelings along the way.
The organizer of an effort to fire the mayor and three council members in Oxnard said there is enough backing for a special election this spring. Flanked by a group of supporters, Aaron Starr told the council on Tuesday he has enough signatures to support a recall of four of the five elected officials. He said he plans to submit 68,000 names to the city clerk Wednesday. Starr needs more than 48,000 valid signatures, or roughly 12,000 per targeted council member, to qualify for a recall election.
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".
