San Diego is home to a growing number of companies that are leveraging advanced technologies, data analytics and predictive models to address our society’s greatest challenges. Some are harnessing genome sequencing to create targeted medical treatments, while others are engineering drones to deliver precise information about crops. One area that we believe holds great potential is higher education, where there is a clear need to better serve post-secondary students and address workforce needs.
Dozens of dog owners flock to Patricia’s Green in Hayes Valley daily to let their four-legged canines frolic in the park. But one of the regulars—who stands on two feet and is just one foot tall—draws attention each time he shows up. Local resident Paul Tortora walks Casper the Cockatoo on a leash throughout Hayes Valley as frequently as any animal owner in the neighborhood—so much so that he and Casper have blurred the line between city oddity and community staple.
On a day when many send expressions of love, the members of Indivisible SF took a different tack: protesting President Trump and his administration, one "Dear Don" letter at a time. Standing in Union Square, the group enticed visitors to "break up" with the Trump administration by writing cathartic messages on heart-shaped valentines, which the group then shared on its Twitter feed and read aloud to passersby.
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".
