The on-again, off-again Jan. 1 legal sale of marijuana in San Francisco is off again, as the Board of Supervisors voted 9-1 Tuesday to postpone creating a city permit system for the adult-use cannabis industry. Though 73 percent of San Francisco voters approved Prop. 64 legalizing recreational cannabis use and sales to begin on Jan. 1, 2018, California counties and municipalities are allowed to prohibit or delay sales.
The 40th anniversary of Harvey Milk’s Nov. 8, 1977 election to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors was in a colorful spotlight Wednesday night, with the unveiling of a new nighttime art installation honoring Milk’s legacy. The first openly gay person elected to public office in the United States, Milk has a beaming new memorial called Harvey’s Halo. SF Weekly was onhand to get pictures and video, as a crowd of nearly 1,500 turned out to Harvey Milk Plaza to see the lights’ debut.
Some new autumn flavors fall pretty far from the tree at the artisan ice cream shop Salt & Straw. Both the Fillmore Street and Hayes Valley locations of the Portland-based small-batch gourmet creamery are now selling Thanksgiving flavors that might get ice cream Puritans’ breeches in a bunch — turkey ice cream, and mashed potato ice cream.
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".
