After absorbing all those yummy calories and sage Martha Stewart advice at The Star's Food & Wine Experience at the Olivas Adobe in Ventura, then what? Well, when it comes to Ventura County, the list is endless. There are trails to hike, islands to explore and museums to peruse. When out-of-towners come to The Star's food and wine event to meet Stewart on Oct. 1, they'll find all kinds of distractions once the show ends. And that's a good thing.
The documentary "Dolores" will return to the big screen in downtown Oxnard following two sold-out shows. On Monday , the Dolores Huerta film will be screened 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. at Plaza Cinemas 14, 255 W. Fifth St. These are the only showings of the film planned in Ventura County. The screenings on Sept. 18 had at-capacity crowds. "We turned people away," said George Sandoval, president of the Oxnard Film Society.
A whistleblower hotline, an anonymous way to report government malfeasance, is up and running in Oxnard. The 24/7 phone line is meant for City Hall employees or anyone in the public to file a complaint about anything from misuse of city property to improper overtime. The phone number is 833-350-0002 for English speakers or 800-216-1288 for Spanish speakers. "It's ready to go," said Fausto Hinojosa, the newly hired internal auditor. "It's live and in place now."
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".
