Before Srini Sankaran even moved to the Greendell neighborhood in the southern part of Palo Alto, he was struck by the hospitality of residents of the 70-80 homes -- mostly Eichlers and some ranch-style -- in the quiet community. "After we picked the house, we wanted to see how the neighborhood was and so we talked to the next-door neighbor," said Sankaran, who has been a resident of Ferne Avenue for 15 years and is president of the neighborhood association.
For some of the most challenged students in East Palo Alto, the best part of their day is closing their eyes and turning in to themselves. Quiet Time, created by the Center for Wellness and Achievement in Education, is a semester-long pilot program at Sequoia Community Day School Green Street Academy that focuses on meditation for stress reduction. Funded with $35,000 as part of the Sequoia Healthcare District’s Healthy Schools Initiative grant and matching funds from the district.
With its Eichlers and meandering circular cul-de-sacs, Fairmeadow is an easy neighborhood to get lost in, in a good way. The circles, originally designed to slow traffic, ended up giving Fairmeadow its nickname: "The Circles." A photo of the neighborhood's circles were even showcased on the cover of Fortune Magazine in 1955. "There's something iconographic about being on the Fortune cover," said Tim Perkins, a resident of Carlson Circle since 2007.
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".
