In Los Angeles, MLK Day is all about the parades. The 33rd Annual Kingdom Day Parade in South LA features floats, celebrities, beauty queens, bands, and our favorite – drill teams. The parade annually draws over 250,000 spectators each year. The parade starts at 10am on MLK and Western, and travels west on MLK to Crenshaw, then south on Crenshaw to Vernon. After the parade, there will be a festival at Leimert Park until 5pm with live music and lots of food.
Ever since rock began, it has been kind of like a little boy’s fort with a big NO WOMEN ALLOWED sign (Written in adorable crooked letters, which is probably the only time misogyny has ever been considered the least bit adorable). The history of rock, and especially punk, has been dismissive at best, if not completely overlooking women’ contributions.
No Kid Hungry, which is working to end childhood hunger in America, is one of the restaurant community’s favorite charities. This year Dog Haus, a local gourmet casual hot dog and craft beer chain, is partnering with eight top chefs from around the country to create fundraising specialty menus. $1 of the purchase price from each of these menu items will be donated to No Kid Hungry. You can also round up your bill to the nearest dollar to raise even more money for the charity.
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".
