Roosevelt High School will be going through a $173-million renovation and school district officials are asking Boyle Heights residents for their input at two upcoming public meetings this month. The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) says the Comprehensive Modernization Project will bring four new buildings to the Roosevelt campus that will house 78 new classrooms, a performing arts center, a gymnasium, and a wellness clinic.
A fire damaged Resurrection Church early Thursday morning but firefighters were able to extinguish it shortly after it began. The fire was reported around 2 a.m. and was put out in less than 30 minutes. According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, the fire was contained to the first floor and no injuries were reported. The flames did not spread to the main sanctuary but The Eastsider reported that statues outside of the church were also knocked over.
Prosecutors have decided not to file criminal charges against a truck driver who hit and killed a Boyle Heights woman in December, saying it would be difficult to get a conviction. Authorities say that on Dec. 21 Daniel Rico struck Cynthia Szukala on the 3700 block of Union Pacific Avenue as he drove his 18-wheel truck, then continued on his way. He is not accused of intentionally running over the woman, but it is a crime to hit someone with a vehicle and not stop to call or provide help.
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".
