Chinese migrants living in California in the late 1800s often arranged to have their bones sent back to their ancestral villages after death. Now, a new art exhibit in San Francisco’s Chinatown explores the roots of bone repatriation. For San Francisco artist Summer Mei Ling Lee, it all started earlier this year when she stared into an empty, dilapidated box. “When I was confronted by that box, I was really hit with an ineffable moment,” remembers Summer.
This week brings with it Día de los Muertos. Many took part in celebrating this past Sunday, at the 22nd annual Día de los Muertos Festival in Oakland's Fruitvale district. Thousands of people were in attendance, browsing the altars that were on display and watching performances from a local Aztec dance group. We sent KALW’s Hannah Kingsley-Ma to talk to some of the altar makers to hear the story behind their creations. "Waking up early, coming here, unloading ... it's a family thing ...
At age nine, Javier Zamora left his grandparent’s home in El Salvador and made the treacherous journey across the U.S.-Mexico border by himself. He was looking to reunite with his parents. When he was little, they left El Salvador, fleeing the civil war that resulted in the deaths of 75,000 Salvadorans. It was a war that the United States was involved in — they helped arm and fund the right wing military. After multiple attempts, Zamora successfully crossed the border, and moved to Marin County.
@emilynussbaum Last night I rewatched "American Bitch" because it just really felt like the thing to do. I was reminded of its nuance, how good of an episode it was. A little strange but not at all surprising to view it and wake up to this news.
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".
