Tl;dr: Sally Yates was the acting attorney general. She was fired by Trump after refusing to defend Trump’s travel ban. She also warned the White House that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn had misled them on his connections to Russia. Most recently, she testified before Congress about Russia’s alleged involvement in the U.S. election. You might recognize Sally Yates’ name from headlines earlier this year in January. “Trump fires acting Attorney General Sally Yates” was one of them.
In the last student election, Dons were asked to vote on a BART discount program. The proposition was one of the more controversial things we voted on this year. It passed by less than a two percent margin, and the program will increase each undergraduates student’s transportation fee by $30. And in return? Discounted BART travel. No, not free like our Muni passes. Discounted, by 25 percent. And not from every stop; you can only make use of this deal from Powell BART station.
Tl;dr: Fyre Music Festival was marketed as a luxury music festival with extravagant tents, gourmet food and breathtaking beach scenes. The reality was actually a disaster. The infrastructure was half-built, the food met bare minimums, artists dropped out and festival-goers were sent home or trapped in the Exuma airport. The Fyre Music Festival was created by tech entrepreneur Billy McFarland and heavily promoted by rapper Ja Rule. The festival took place on Great Exuma, an island in the Bahamas.
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".
