At its regular meeting Sept. 12, Berkeley City Council tabled a city ordinance that aimed to legalize the display of female breasts in public and equalize gender nudity laws. The ordinance was authored by Councilmember Kriss Worthington after Simone Stevens, a high school senior at Head-Royce School who worked as one of his summer interns, drafted the initial proposal.
A study led by campus psychology researchers used GIFs to identify 27 new states of human emotion connected on a gradient, opposing the long-established belief that there are a few basic emotional states. Graduate student Alan Cowen was the driving force of the research, along with campus psychology professor Dacher Keltner. Their study was published Sept. 5 in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.
UC Berkeley alumnus Assaf Pashut officially opened the doors to The Flying Falafel in Downtown Berkeley on Saturday. The falafel shop, located at 2114 Shattuck Ave., is the second location for The Flying Falafel chain, owned by Pashut. Pashut opened the first location about three years ago in San Francisco. Pashut’s first exposure to the falafel-making business occurred when he was a student at UC Berkeley, where he would set up “Falafel Friday” booths on Sproul Plaza for club fundraisers.
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".
