MILPITAS >> A Muslim faith organization has been cleared to relocate from its site of nearly 30 years near the Great Mall to a part of town zoned for industrial uses that include high-tech. The Milpitas Planning Commission voted 6-1, with Ray Maglalang dissenting, to approve the Ismaili Cultural Center’s conditional use permit to operate as an assembly inside an existing industrial building with shared parking at 691 S. Milpitas Blvd., east of Gibraltar Drive.
Milpitas’ Veterans Day Ceremony, held Saturday morning at Veterans Plaza, paid respects to those who sacrificed for their country while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. About 200 people gathered for the 40-minute event that saw welcoming remarks by Mayor Rich Tran and Milpitas Veterans Commission Vice Chair Denny Weisgerber.
A proposed $74 million, 100 percent affordable housing development meant to help alleviate the high cost of living in the city got a boost last week. The Milpitas City Council, acting jointly as the city’s housing authority, voted unanimously on Nov. 7 to give a $150,000 loan to Berkeley-based Resources for Community Development (RCD) to help cover predevelopment expenses for a 102-unit, below-market rate rental project at 355 Sango Court, south of Montague Expressway.
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".
