Anxiety and fear have seen an uptick amongst immigrants since President Trump’s signing of the executive order on immigration in January, especially in Salinas where there is a large migrant worker population many who come from Mexico. Schools have also reported a rise in the number of children exhibiting anxiety, especially fearful of loved ones being deported. On the flip side, anxiety, depression and mental illness remain a taboo topic carrying a stigma in Latin American culture.
After months of discussion over designating Salinas a Sanctuary City, the city has been designated a Welcoming City. At Tuesday’s City Council meeting, councilmembers voted 5-2 for a welcoming city resolution. The resolution is effective immediately, and city leaders assert that it ends any discussion of sanctuary designation for the near future. The vote came after a lively discussion which at times grappled over the resolution’s wording.
The day is young but it is already buzzing with energy at Natividad Medical Center (NMC). A chopper lands at the trauma center, there’s a breakfast rush in the brightly-lit cafeteria, BoBo and Beah the therapy dogs greet folks in the waiting room, and the hospitals 172 beds are sometimes near capacity. Architecturally and aesthetically Natividad doesn’t necessarily stand out but it has a special place in our community.
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".
