Hundreds gathered in Sacramento to stand in solidarity with Charlottesville, marching from the City Hall to the west steps of the Capitol on Sunday. "Hatred is not an American value," Councilwomen Angelique Ashby said in front of the crowd. Everyone stood in front of City Hall listening to speakers before hitting the streets. "There is no moral equivalency for white supremacy and people who protest peacefully," Mayor Darrell Steinberg said.
After a spike in violence, the Sacramento Police Department will be extra vigilant this Fourth of July holiday. "We want everyone to have fun this Fourth of July but our concern is gunfire," said Sac PD Sgt. Bryce Heinlein. The PD is using a system they have called ShotSpot to help tell the difference between gunshots and fireworks. It helps the department self dispatch, analyzing sound waves through microphones, then sends the information to the officers and dispatch.
Some say it feels like we live in a park and with just under 3 million trees across Sacramento, there's a reason it has been called the 'City of Trees'. For years the Freeport water tower had the slogan plastered on the side and recently Visit Sacramento decided to replace the iconic slogan with 'America's farm-to-fork capital'. Some people weren't happy about it and there's now a petition to bring back the 'city of trees' slogan.
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".
