Legal marijuana is on its way back to Long Beach. LB Green Room, is on pace to open some time in the coming week, manager Adam Hijazi said. The business is in the same location, on Seventh Street near Rose Avenue, where it operated during an earlier period when city government regulated dispensaries, before deciding to ban the shops in 2012. The dispensary site housed political operations at times during the period when City Hall banned dispensaries, Hijazi said.
Cal State Long Beach officials have contacted the FBI following threats made against members of La Raza Student Association, as well as Jewish students. Campus police are also investigating the threats, which were made over the Internet and in the form of antagonizing fliers posted around the school’s multicultural center. Campus President Jane Close Conoley confirmed the investigations in a mass email sent to school employees and students on Tuesday.
Pro-labor voices on Long Beach’s City Council fell short of convincing their colleagues of the need for a new city law regulating working conditions for housekeepers who clean the city’s hotels. The council voted 5-4 Tuesday night to reject a proposal that would have required the City Attorney’s office to draft an ordinance setting new rules for all Long Beach hotels, an alteration from the original proposal that called for the protections at hotels with more than 100 rooms.
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".
