Four foundations have loaned a total of $20 million towards an L.A. homeless housing loan fund, bringing the fund to $60 million, Mayor Eric Garcetti announced Tuesday. The Supportive Housing Loan Fund makes loans to affordable-housing builders to help them acquire properties for permanent supportive housing, which is defined as housing that comes with on-site programs to help the homeless and disabled. It can also cover the costs of developing plans and securing approvals.
L.A. County’s unemployment rate rose to 4.8 percent in August from a historic low of 4.5 percent in July as more people hunted for work while the region’s job creation machine slowed. While the unemployment rate rose, it was still down from 5.2 percent in August 2017, and it was lower than last month’s statewide rate of 5.1 percent. But the August countywide increase did enlarge the gap with the rest of the nation, where the average unemployment rate was 4.4 percent in August.
Many new restaurants, bars and hotels in Los Angeles will be able to go to a city planning counter and pick up a permit to sell alcohol instead of slogging through a months-long contentious process if one City Council member has his way.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
