Davis residents who travel the rails on the Capitol Corridor line may have noticed train cars seem a little more crowded than usual this week. It’s not because more people than usual are commuting by train; rather, two train sets assigned to the Capitol Corridor weekday operation each have one fewer car, as those cars have been sent to Santa Barbara to ease overcrowding on the Pacific Surfliner.
A packed house greeted the speakers and performers who took the stage at the Varsity Theatre on Monday for the city’s annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. celebration. The 24th annual event focused on equity in education and STEM fields and featured two speakers who spoke about the importance of realizing the dream in both. The event, as always, concluded with local children leading a Freedom March through the streets of Davis that ended at the E Street Plaza.
Mark West, a self-described “reluctant politician,” is the eighth declared candidate for Davis City Council, and like others before him, cites the city’s housing crisis and fiscal challenges as the impetus for throwing his hat in the ring. But West’s candidacy is also rooted in his personal history in Davis: He grew up here, returned after college to raise a family here, and now worries that the opportunities for others to do the same are slipping away. “I really, really like Davis,” West said.
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".
