SAN JOSE (KRON) — Hot weather is hitting the Bay Area, as investigators remain focused on some recent suspicious fires in the City of San Jose. The fires are happening just south of Downtown San Jose. Up one hill, you can see a burn scar from one recent fire. Interstate 280 is just over the top. You can see several of these burn scars along 280 and in the nearby Coyote Meadows. Both are areas with significant numbers of homeless encampments.
FREMONT (KRON) — Some high school students in Fremont are under fire after a senior prank resulted in vandalism and graffiti that included a swastika, according to KRON4’s Rob Fladeboe. The senior prank is a tradition for graduating seniors to leave their mark or participate in some kind of prank at Irvington High School. But as Rob reports, this year, the prank got out of control.
CUPERTINO (KRON) — Some students at a South Bay high school are being accused of creating and promoting what local black leaders say was a “kill list” targeting African-American students. The so-called “kill list” was allegedly being circulated on social media back in Sept. 2016 as part of what activists say is a hate crime targeting black students at Monte Vista High School in Cupertino. “This is unconscionable,” activist Walter Wilson said.
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".
