Think the Aug. 26 “Free Speech” rally that politicians are billing as a “white supremacist” meet-up couldn’t get any more intense? Well, Dorothy, hold Toto close. The self-styled militia known as the Oath Keepers will be on hand at the controversial Patriot Prayer rally at Crissy Field, the event’s organizer Joey Gibson told me in an interview Wednesday night. “I’m not spending money on security,” Gibson told me. “It’s the Oath Keepers [who will provide security].” Oh, the Oath Keepers.
The thousands of Muni riders who depend on the system’s elevators will need to jab the “up” button a little longer, it seems. Though the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency has identified repair and rehabilitation needs totalling $71 million for its escalators and elevators in its newest 20-year Capital Plan, elevator and escalator technicians are nearly impossible to find, officials said. The culprit for this dearth of elevator-experts? The City’s construction boom.
Merchants are demanding a Ford GoBike kiosk be removed from Bernal Heights as part of voiced opposition to the program in some parts of San Francisco. Ford GoBike bikeshare stations also continue to draw vandalism in the Bay Area. This opposition, voiced at the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency Board of Directors meeting on Tuesday, may be the first time Ford GoBike opposition has spilled into an open government meeting.
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".
