Terri Cruz, a prominent Mexican-American community leader and a founding board member of the social-services agency Chicanos Por La Causa, died Thursday morning. She was 89. She helped found CPLC in 1969 and worked for the agency for more than four decades as a social-services counselor. Pete Garcia, who was the president and CEO of the organization for 23 years and died in May, told The Arizona Republic in 2013 that Cruz "is considered the mother of CPLC."
As one college campus closes in Peoria, another is growing its enrollment. Trine University shuttered in June after afour-year run and $2.4 million in city funding. But Huntington University, also with city incentives, is gearing up. Huntington University opened with 18 students as it put the finishing touches on its spa-turned-university building last year. The private liberal-arts institution anchored in Indiana expects to begin its second year of classes with about 100 students on Aug. 28.
The Peoria Unified School District will take over the building adjacent to one of its high schools that for 17 years housed the Arizona Challenger Space Center. The district’s governing board approved a land swap with Kevin Knight of the Knight Transportation Group on Thursday. Knight has been a benefactor for Challenger since it opened in 2000, but the non-profit has been unable to repay him a $3.6 million loan.
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".
