While the destitute could stay in the shelter at night, they lingered on the streets nearby during the day doing drugs, urinating and defecating on the street, and having sex in the open, according to Laura Contreras, who lives nearby. The shelter didn’t open last year, but the homeless never left.
Hace dos años, la iglesia Greater Community Missionary Baptist del 11066 de la avenida Norris en Pacoima se convirtió en un albergue de invierno para desamparados. Los problemas para el vecindario empezaron poco después, dicen los residentes. Mientras los indigentes permanecían en el refugio por la noche, se quedaban en las calles cercanas durante el día, haciendo drogas, orinando y defecando en la calle, y teniendo sexo al aire libre, según Laura Contreras, que vive cerca.
“She’s been here for years. She’s community-friendly and a real advocate for the community,” said Gwendolyn Posey of Aquino. Posey was a member of the Guidance Body, comprised of 10 others, including Rev. Arthur Broadous, Rev. Dennis Ware, Maria Jimenez, Eliza Venzor, Dr. Sergio Vasquez, Odilia Jara, Alicia Martinez, Renato Lira, Ismael Maldonado and Rosa Berrelleza. All were volunteers and received no compensation. Posey said Macias came in with a “negative attitude” and soon there were clashes.
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".
