SAN FRANCISCO — The question over whether Oakland had enough evidence to ban the handling and shipment of coal within city limits was put under a microscope Tuesday, at the start of a federal trial brought on by a prominent developer’s lawsuit. The 2016 ordinance unanimously approved by the Oakland City Council directly put a stop to developer Phil Tagami’s plan to import trainloads of coal from Utah to be stored in Oakland and then loaded on ships bound for Asia.
OAKLAND — A bicycle sharing station installed Thursday at Rockridge BART has upset neighborhood leaders who say the racks are too close to a 1991 Oakland hills firestorm memorial. The Ford GoBikes put in Thursday along College Avenue underneath the BART tracks and Highway 24 are a few feet away from the wall memorial of 2,300 tiles dedicated to the memory of 25 people killed in the inferno and 3,000 homes destroyed.
SAN FRANCISCO — Prominent developer Phil Tagami’s lawsuit against the city of Oakland over its ban on the shipping and transport of coal is headed to trial. U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria on Wednesday ruled to move the case to a bench trial scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 16, according to online court records.
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".
