That’s What She Said was created last February in response to the...A rainstorm washed down Geary Boulevard on Monday evening, Jan. 8, but inside the Social Study, a brick-walled cafe and bar on the edge of San Francisco’s Fillmore district, the future looked bright. Undeterred by the downpour, several dozen women gathered for a monthly speaking event called That’s What She Said, an all-female community created last February in response to the election of Donald Trump.
Amid the eager thousands who made a New Year’s Day trek onto the Golden Gate Bridge were dozens of volunteers in bright orange armbands. The kind-eyed armband brigade weren’t there to gaze at the stunning scenery or kick off a New Year’s exercise regime. No, these folks were part of a hypervigilant group known as the Bridgewatch Angels, and they strolled the span to help thwart potential suicides at the Bay Area’s most iconic structure.
Joe Murphy’s booth stands out at Berkeley’s Telegraph Avenue Holiday Street Fair — and not just because he’s been in the street market business for 26 years. Murphy makes and sells ceramic pendants featuring the words for “peace” in 123 languages. Something about it, maybe his cool signage or the connection each of us have with certain languages, consistently attracts shoppers from all stripes of life.
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".
