Photos: Bay Area Tries to Stay Cool as Temperatures RiseThe Bay Area is cooking this week as we experience the first heat wave of the summer. With triple digit temperatures appearing in the eastern region and high-90s across the inland areas, the coast has become a haven for those escaping the scorching conditions. The National Weather Service anticipates Thursday will be the hottest day of the week, with cooling temperatures through the weekend.
Roughly 200 San Francisco doctors and nurses rallied Thursday outside San Francisco General Hospital to protest the recently released Senate health care bill. Crafted in secret by Republican leadership, the bill repeals major parts of the sweeping healthcare law implemented by President Obama, known as the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare. The Republican replacement bill would phase out Medicaid expansion, cap spending on Medicaid and eliminate many taxes that fund Obamacare.
After a crushing Game 7 loss ended last season, the Golden State Warriors are once again NBA Champions. The team clinched the title Monday night after defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. While the confetti fell and the champagne was sprayed at Oracle Arena, fans filled the streets of downtown Oakland to celebrate their team’s latest triumph — the Warriors’ second championship in three seasons. The revelry was relatively peaceful.
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".
