One Saturday in August of 2016, a team of about a dozen young radio reporters set out to interview Boyle Heights residents and record the stories they heard along one of the neighborhood’s most emblematic streets. The resulting audio documentary –”Sounds of César E. Chávez Avenue”– will have its premiere at a “listening and viewing” party on Sunday, February 25, from 4 to 7 pm, at the Boyle Heights Arts Conservatory.
For decades residents here have headed to the St. Louis Pharmacy for their meds. Soon, they will be coming to the same corner building for fresh baked-goods and pastries. Baker Amy Tam and her fiancée and co-owner Andres Fuentes have now been working for two years to open Cake Girl inside the long-time neighborhood pharmacy. Fuentes – a 30-year-old who is a Boyle Heights native – would pass by the pharmacy on E. 1st and St. Louis Street nearly every day as he rode Metro.
A Southern California speaking tour by Puerto Rican nationalist Oscar López Rivera –who was released from custody in 2017 after serving more than 35 years of a 55-year sentence for seditious conspiracy– will include a visit to Cal State Los Angeles this month. López Rivera, who turned 75 in January, will speak at the Eastside campus on Wednesday, February 7, from 1:30 to 3 p.m.
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".
