Earlier this month, a new sorority, Delta Sigma, was created on campus, taking the place of the Alpha Omicron Pi chapter of UC Berkeley after Alpha Omicron Pi nationals pulled the charter for the existing chapter last fall. The change is the result of a decadelong dispute that resulted from Alpha Omicron Pi nationals wanting to transition all existing chapter houses to Alpha Omicron Pi properties.
Gig Car Share, an app that could help community members avoid pricey parking costs, will launch as Berkeley’s first one-way ride-sharing program April 30. Customers will be able to use an app to pick up and drop off a car at any of the Gig Car Share locations in Berkeley and Oakland. Berkeley City Council passed its One-Way Car Share Ordinance in October 2016, which allows car-sharing businesses to operate in Berkeley.
Berkeley businesses have experienced significant turnover in the last few weeks, with the opening of Trek Bicycle and Equinox gym and the closing of Nolo Bookstore. Nolo Bookstore, located on 950 Parker St., is scheduled to close April 28. Nolo Press has been publishing its do-it-yourself legal guides since 1971 and now includes what they call the Nolo Network, which encompasses over 50 web properties as well as a Nolo Lawyers Directory.
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".
