Advocates for undocumented immigrants in Fallbrook are celebrating the release of Mario Figueroa from federal custody. Figueroa is a young father of a 10-month-old daughter whose story is drawing the sympathies of many in the San Diego community. He was detained by federal authorities Tuesday and scheduled for deportation the following Tuesday. Without explanation, Figueroa was released late Friday night, after a very scary four days in detention awaiting certain deportation.
Some claims have been filed against the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) over losses suffered because of invalidated Advanced Placement (AP) test scores for hundreds of students, NBC 7 learned Friday. AP test scores for 547 Scripps Ranch High School students were thrown out from the June round of testing because of a seating error by exam administers. Those students will have to retake the tests or skip testing out of college classes.
Residents of a Mira Mesa neighborhood are disturbed after an 81-year-old woman was struck by a copper pipe more than 30 times in the head. According to San Diego police, the victim returned to her home on Capcano Road and found her 36-year-old son in the front yard. He used a hose to squirt water on her and she told him to take his medication. That's when the son began beating her with two copper pipes, police said.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
