SAN FRANCISCO — The San Francisco Pride Parade is by nature exuberant, outlandish and loud. But for one moment Sunday, marchers in this cradle of LGBT rights fell utterly quiet. The rambunctious participants and spectators — in their rainbow feather boas and black leather bustiers, their bare bellies and spiked heels — came to a stop in front of the grandstand and offered a somber moment of silence for the 49 victims of the massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, two weeks ago.
SAN JOSE — An inmate at the Santa Clara County Main Jail who witnessed the deadly beating of a fellow inmate allegedly at the hands of three correctional officers in August plans to file a claim Wednesday contending that he was beaten a month earlier by different guards.
SAN JOSE — Tom Alessandri had already selected the cast and blocked out the scenes for the alumni production of “Swift Justice” at Bellarmine College Prep this summer. He had scribbled notes in the margins on the script about who exits stage right and which props needed to be where. He had met with former San Jose mayor Tom McEnery — who co-wrote the play about one of the darkest chapters in city history — to discuss how to make the story about mob violence more relevant for today.
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".
