To get people to ponder notions such as kindness and hope, Diana Argabrite places ceramic fortune cookies openly around the De Anza College campus to lure viewers into her Euphrat Museum of Art, where the curator seals the deal by handing them freshly popped popcorn at the entrance to snack on while reflecting on the big questions. It’s a little unconventional, but it works.
Try conjuring up an image of Cupertino and apples come to mind—OK, more like one specific Apple, but 17-year-old Karen Ma wants people to think more about the trees that apples grow on, and she’s doing her part to make sure they’re visible all around her city. Karen, a senior at Monta Vista High School, has dedicated herself to making the city greener. To her, the cause is a no-brainer; the environmental and economic benefits that trees provide are numerous, she said.
The Sayers have a saying: “When ceremony and dancing stop, so does the Earth.”At Indian Canyon in Hollister, the only land continuously held by the Ohlone–the first inhabitants of the San Francisco and Monterey regions–ceremonies are more than just regularly held events; they’re a way of life for the indigenous people. “We are still here and we’re not invisible, but the dominant society feels as though we are,” said Anne Marie Sayers, tribal chairwoman of the mile-long Indian Canyon.
"You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing. I wove my webs for you because I liked you. After all, what’s a life, anyway? We’re born, we live a little while, we die...” #CharlottesWeb
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".
