Police are asking for the public’s help in solving five suspiciously similar robberies and robbery attempts in the last week near UC Berkeley. Most of the five incidents took place on the campus’ north side, and each happened when a pedestrian walking alone was approached at night and attacked by at least two men, police said Thursday. Two of the five thefts happened Nov. 9, when suspects approached a man just after 9:15 p.m. at Spruce and Virginia streets before attacking him.
Visions of sugar plum fairies are already dancing in your head. The holiday arts season is upon us and you are eager to expose your darling child to the wonders of live performance. Wouldn’t it be memorable to take a family outing to the arts? You could even bring the grandparents along and make a day of it. But before you nab orchestra seats for “Annie” or “Nutcracker” or “A Christmas Carol,” you may want to spend a few minutes making sure you are prepared for your theatrical adventure.
Banish the bah humbugs for good with some festive holiday theater. Maybe you crave an annual pilgrimage to redemption with old Ebenezer or a sweeping magic carpet ride with “Aladdin.” Perhaps this is the year to celebrate with the irreverent antics of the Second City troupe or Beth Wilmurt’s tribute to the Chekhovian heroine Olga or Steve Martin’s new bluegrass musical.
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".
