Souza ought to know. As Obama’s chief White House photographer, he sat in on every meeting and took every trip of Obama’s presidency. He took one sick day in eight years on the job. He took 1.9 million shots of the 44th president.
Even on its best day, the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge is no basket of fruit. Unlike its Bay Area brethren — the icons with their pleasing arcs and majestic towers, and even the more utilitarian structures with their (mostly) uncomplicated designs — the crossing named for John F. McCarthy is 5.5 miles of hard labor. Starting on the Richmond side, it roller-coasters up and down, ultimately curling north down to water’s edge.
It was the quintessential Richmond homicide, circa 1994. Heart-wrenching and horrific, but almost indistinguishable from the other heart-wrenching and horrific homicides the city was experiencing at the rate of once a week. Her name was Cecilia Rios — friends knew her as Cecy — and she was a 15-year-old student at Richmond High School. She was walking home one day and decided to take a shortcut through San Pablo’s Downer Elementary School. There she was raped and stabbed to death.
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".
