August 9 marks the one-year anniversary of the death of 14-year-old Boyle Heights resident Jesse Romero during an LAPD officer-involved shooting and the teen’s family, friends and community supporters plan to gather Tuesday evening for a vigil in the teen’s memory. The vigil will take place at 7:30 p.m. near the corner of Breed Street and César Chávez Avenue, the spot where Romero was shot by being pursued by officers who responded to a call about gang-related vandalism.
At a recent Board of Supervisors meeting, First District representative Hilda Solís recognized the work done by Boyle Heights Beat youth journalists, its mentors and directors. “Thank you for being a powerful voice for Boyle Heights and the First District,” said Supervisor Solís, who shared some of the program’s achievements with her colleagues.
More than three-quarters of people living near the shuttered Exide plant in Vernon are concerned that they or someone in their household may get cancer as a result of living in their neighborhood. That is one of the results of a community survey of nearly 4,000 homes in Boyle Heights, unincorporated East Los Angeles and the cities of Commerce, Bell, Maywood, Huntington Park and Vernon conducted last month by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.
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".
