For decades, fourth-grade students in California have had one project that has taken over dining room tables, required piles of Popsicle sticks and sugar cubes and kept parents and children up at night completing it: building a model of one of the 18th- and 19th-century Spanish missions in the state. But under a new educational framework the state Department of Education is rolling out, the annual project may become history. Why?
At one time, the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach didn’t show U.S. artists with Latino roots, excluding even the Chicano art movement so visible in Los Angeles and the southwest United States. But last year, MOLAA broadened its mission to include not just artists who had lived or worked in Latin America, but also those who had lived in other countries, including the United States. The new exhibit “Miradas” is the museum’s first putting that broader approach into practice.
The Los Angeles Unified School District serves nearly 650,000 meals a day to its students, including breakfast, lunch — and now at some schools, vegan lunch — and an afternoon meal the district calls “supper.” And not all of that food gets eaten. But earlier this week, Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law a bill that will make it easier for schools across the state to donate those leftovers to charities and food pantries.
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".
