Two Milpitas High School students who brought a semi-automatic pistol and a backpack containing a loaded magazine to school last week were taken into custody after authorities twice locked down the campus at 1285 Escuela Parkway. On Oct. 26 at 12:05 p.m., Milpitas High students told staff they had seen a student inside a bathroom with a handgun. School security found a 14-year-old boy with an unloaded handgun in the bathroom and a loaded magazine nearby in his backpack, police said.
Residents of the Sunnyhills Apartments worried that they would have nowhere to go after February, have been given a five-year reprieve. The Milpitas City Council voted 3-0 Oct. 26 to approve an agreement whereby the owner of the 171-unit development at 1724 Sunnyhills Drive, will renew its contract with the Department of Housing and Urban Development for five years. That action will supposedly give the city time to work out longer-term solutions for affordable housing.
In response to an open government lawsuit, the City of Milpitas has released public documents that shed some additional light on former city manager Tom Williams’ alleged abusive conduct toward some department heads before his abrupt resignation. On Oct. 26, the First Amendment Coalition announced in a written statement that Milpitas had released documents revealing numerous previously undisclosed details about Williams’ interactions with his underlings.
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".
