Mariam Stepanian, president and general manager of Valley Public Radio, died Thursday, Jan. 18, due to complications from an illness. Stepanian was surrounded by her family and closest friends at the time of her passing in Fresno, Valley Public Radio said in a statement released Friday afternoon. “Mariam was an unparalleled leader who empowered Valley Public Radio staff, board and members to unequaled success,” said White Ash Broadcasting Board Chair David Parker.
Moreover, he’s never in a hurry. I bet when he was a kid in a long line to ride the train at Roeding Park, he told those behind him, “We’ll get there when we get there.”And if Brand wanted to, he could get a copyright for “We need to get it right — instead of right now.”At Thursday morning’s news conference — just one of many events in the mayor’s busy day — Brand unveiled his plan to make Fresno more business-friendly.
Multiple sources told GV Wire on Wednesday morning that Fresno Unified leaders and the Fresno Teachers Association have struck a deal on a new three-year contract. Negotiators for both sides worked until 5 a.m. to get the deal done, and to avoid the district’s first teachers strike since 1978. A source within FTA said that trustee approval was expected to be a “mere formality.” Sources additionally credited Superintendent Bob Nelson with winning the trust of union negotiators.
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".
