Today is #GivingTuesday, and where better to give than the independent student paper that serves your community? In 1971, 100 years from our beginning, we became independent after the campus tried to censor us. We’ve been on our own to raise money ever since. The price of independence is steep but worth it. In just the last year, The Daily Californian unearthed 134 cases of faculty and staff sexual misconduct throughout the UC system.
Across the country, thousands of hate crimes go unreported and ignored. The same is true in Berkeley. That’s why The Daily Californian is joining ProPublica’s Documenting Hate project — to help track hate crimes and bias-related incidents nationwide. Students at UC Berkeley have few options when reporting hate crimes. Beyond UCPD, there’s a systemwide online portal, but no hate-crime specific enforcement agency.
One year later, Berkeley looks different. With its unique history and a reputation for progressive liberalism, Berkeley has become a beacon of hope for many — and a target for many more — after the election of President Donald Trump. Since Nov. 8, 2016, the campus and city have seen disruptive riots, and peaceful marches. A new mayor and city council majority are tackling issues that have long-plagued Berkeley.
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".
