The San Diego City Council finds itself in the middle of a fight between the City Attorney, the Parks and Recreation Department, and the 52 recreation councils that have been operating as separate fundraising and contracting entities for decades. It wasn’t supposed to be that way, but that’s how it’s working out — or not working out. On Sept. 8, City Attorney Mara Elliott released a legal opinion that will essentially put the recreation councils out of business effective Jan. 1, 2018.
If you happen to drive or walk north on 51st Street from Zion Avenue in Allied Gardens, you’ll see what looks at first to be a very ornate, somewhat oversized mailbox, built to look like a miniature of Ascension Lutheran Church. What you’re seeing is a very small community food pantry, with the aim of storing food that anyone who needs food to eat can access by simply opening the door. More to the point, what you’re seeing is the faith of the pastor of Ascension Lutheran, Rick Fry.
The thousands of drivers every day who pass through the Friars Road area around state Route 163 have already begun seeing roadwork signs, warning of construction work about to be done in that area. In the next two years, they’ll see many more of those signs, as work proceeds on the two-year, $40 million project to widen and re-route roads and on- and off-ramps. It’s been a headache for people since development started in the west Mission Valley area years ago.
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".
