Three years into providing jobs, training, and housing for homeless youth in San Francisco, Taking It To The Streets has launched a crowdfunding campaign to extend its reach. Helmed by Christian Calinsky of Mom's Body Shop, the group provides housing, job training, and other services for homeless adults aged 18 to 27. In exchange, its clients help clean streets and remove graffiti around the Upper Haight and Cole Valley. Hosted through HandUp, the fundraiser has its sights set on raising $50,000.
As announced by the Examiner, the University of San Francisco is looking to expand its student housing by razing existing structures on its Lone Mountain campus to build two new dormitories estimated to cost $68 million. If approved, the buildings would add as much as 200,000 gross square feet above ground and 77,000 square feet in an underground parking garage, according to documents on file with the city.
This Friday marks the San Francisco release of Oh Lucy!, a feature film directed and co-written by Noe Valley filmmaker Atsuko Hirayanagi. The project began as a short student film, but after it won second place at the 2014 Cannes International Film Festival and received other accolades, it caught the attention of Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, who executive-produced the full-length version opening this week.
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".
