A high school student is about to have a piece of his hard work put into use on the International Space Station, thanks to a contest that asked young engineers to reach for the stars.Ansel Austin just learned he won a design competition for his "trillium tool," a triangular multipurpose wrench designed to be used in space. As part of the grand prize, his tool will be 3D printed aboard the International Space Station. "Well, I'm certainly hoping that (the astronauts) use it," he said.
San Francisco is known for tight quarters and high rent -- not just for housing, but for businesses, too.Now, one restaurant in the city's Mission District launched an effort to do what apartment dwellers have done for years: split the rent with a roommate.Rhea's Cafe is a family-owned lunchtime staple for those who work in the neighborhood. But long before lunch on Wednesday, an unusually long line formed outside, even in the pouring rain.
It's not a typical Hollywood movie -- and that may be why it's gotten the backing and attention of big names in Hollywood. "Oh Lucy!" was directed, written and produced by San Francisco-based filmmaker Atsuko Hirayanagi, who first began playing with the story for a film school assignment: write a script about someone you know. In many ways, the film's main character the person Hirayanagi knows best of all: herself.
"Oh Lucy!" is a film whose creator calls it a hybrid: Part drama, part comedy. Part foreign, part Hollywood. And it's opening here in San Francisco on Friday -- the city where its award-winning script was largely written at the neighborhood library. http://abc7ne.ws/2pbPUPm
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".
