For now, Assembly Bill 5 - sponsored by Assemblyman Ash Kalra, D-San Jose, and Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher, D-San Diego - sits idle in the Appropriations Committee, which postponed a May hearing on it. Should the bill pass this legislative session or in a future one, Seyfarth Shaw partner Timothy Hix said it will create more lawsuits that will focus on the ambiguity or lack of clarity on how to comply with it, as well as allegations of discrimination in the assignment of hours.
A bill that would have required companies to determine whether their products appealed to certain genders and price them accordingly didn't go far this year in the California Legislature, but it will reappear in the future. Assemblyman Marc Levine's AB 1576 would have amended the Gender Tax Repeal Act of 1995 by prohibiting businesses from charging more for products "because of the gender of the targeted user."
ADAMS - Travis W. and Jamie L. Richmond had no idea coming home would be so good. Moving their family business from The Pizza Shack in Sackets Harbor to Carson's after 14 years was not in the plans, said the couple. "I don't know why we are here, but everything happens for a reason," said Mrs.
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".
