Ana Carlos still remembers the day last November when the letter came in the mail. "I get inside the kitchen, I open it up, and it basically looks like an escrow contract," she recalls. An Orange County developer was offering her $440,000 for her house. She paid less than half that six years ago. The offer still stands. "I wouldn’t even considering selling," she says, looking out at her property. It spans two acres, with a barn, horses and goats.
President Donald Trump's newest executive order aims to expand the use of "association health plans," something he says will help small businesses afford coverage. Association health plans allow groups of small business owners to band together and buy health insurance coverage together. The idea is, by creating a larger pool of coverage holders, costs will go down.
The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority is in its final push to find 6,000 volunteers for the annual homeless count in Los Angeles County. The project, which is mandated by the federal government, requires U.S. cities to count the number of people living on the streets each year in late January. "It’s not just about counting," said George McQuade, a spokesman with L.A.’s Homeless Services Authority. "It’s what we do with that .. to get them more permanent supportive housing."
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".
