In response to one of two requests filed by the Pasadena Weekly under provisions of the state Public Records Act, Pasadena police stated officers do not collect information about race, gender or age from people pulled over in traffic stops. Last year, Chief of Police Phillip Sanchez was asked to have his officers start collecting this type of information by City Councilman John Kennedy, chair of the council’s Public Safety Committee.
Thirty-three people have died in LA County since October due to complications caused by the flu, according to the California Department of Public Health. The outbreak has caused a shortage in medicine at pharmacies and packed emergency rooms. According to Pasadena Information Officer William Boyer, the city’s Public Health Department has not reported any deaths. “The flu has hit Pasadena like every place else,” Boyer told the Pasadena Weekly.
At a Pasadena City Council meeting attended by more than 200 people, concerned residents demanded reform of the Police Department and the firing of two officers who brutalized an Altadena man during a traffic encounter in November. Christopher Ballew, 21, suffered a broken leg on Nov. 9 after being struck repeatedly with a metal police baton during an encounter with Officers Zachary Lujan and Lerry Esparza. Ballew’s head was also rammed into the asphalt and he was punched repeatedly.
@MiekeEoyang The porn star? How is racism consistent with their values? how is sexual assault consistent with their values? if those are in fact their values and convictions - they wouldn't have voted for the orange menace.
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".
