There's a new immigration bill in the Senate, and we can probably just call it "DACA 2.0." Yesterday, Republican Sens. Thom Tillis, James Lankford, and Orrin Hatch introduced the SUCCEED Act, which they hope can replace the program that protects young people brought to this country illegally by their parents. "It, in theory, should cover people who are already enrolled in the DACA program. And then some," said Politico reporter Seung Min Kim in an interview with KPCC's Josie Huang.
But at Cal State Long Beach, some are telling team mascot Prospector Pete, "Go away!" The school was founded in 1949, a century after the famous 49ers came to the state looking for riches. That's why administrators at the time thought he'd be a good mascot. "In 1949, Prospector Pete seemed to be an innocuous representation of the founding of the state," says CSULB's provost Brian Jersky. There's even a statue dedicated to Pete on campus.
Months into taking the job, the LAPD officers who patrol Metro's buses and trains say dealing with the homeless is a "significant challenge." Speaking earlier this week to the LA Police Commission, Deputy Chief Robert Green, head of the LAPD's Transit Services Bureau, said the problem is "a continuous struggle." The LA Sheriff's Department used to be the sole agency that provided security on Metro.
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".
