Snap Inc., the Southern California-based company behind popular photo messaging app Snapchat, has signed a new lease for more than 10,500 square feet of office space in Mountain View. The lease, for one floor at 444 Castro St., is significant because it appears to be the social media company's first outpost in Silicon Valley. Snap opened an office in San Francisco in late 2016, as reported by several media outlets at the time.
Imagine Vietnam Town, the 20-acre commercial and retail project on the east side of San Jose, filled with a new co-working space, a food hall and events building and urgent care mixed in with restaurants and retail shops. Vietnam Town, a project first proposed in 2009, has seen fits and starts over the past decade, punctuated with a bankruptcy and change in ownership.
One of the first projects in Santa Clara County to benefit from the county's $950 million affordable housing bond, known as Measure A, took a couple big steps forward in recent weeks. Urban Housing Communities this month closed on a 1.6-acre property in Morgan Hill, where it plans to build a three-story, mixed-use project with 39 affordable units set aside for people making between 30 percent and 60 percent of the area median income.
@NKDrifter@LindyLawyer@Reuters You could try to find an airline that doesn’t allow animals on board and only use them, but due to the issue around discrimination for people who need those pets to live, you’ll probably be hard-pressed to find such an airline.
@NKDrifter@LindyLawyer@Reuters You‘re ignoring that many who bring animals on planes need them due to disabilities or health issues. I’m pretty sure it’s not legal to discriminate against those people or disallow their service animal. Plus, airlines have opted to allow small pets and that’s their right.
@NKDrifter@Reuters In addition, allergies are something that can be mitigated. If I were horribly allergic to cats or dogs, I’d probably bring along some allergy medicine just in case someone has a pet on board - the same as I grab zinc, vitamin c & sanitizer just in case someone is sick on board.
@NKDrifter@Reuters I think it is illegal and morally wrong to discriminate against people with disabilities or health issues that require a service animal. Those with allergies can just ask to be moved away from the animal.
@NKDrifter@Reuters I don’t think anyone would ever choose to fly with a pet if they felt it could be avoided - it’s stressful! But there will always be people who have service animals who have just as much right to fly as anyone else, so airlines would have a hard time outright banning animals.
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".
