High school students in San Juan Capistrano are hoping to change the life of a three-legged pup with a prosthetic leg they're making with a 3D printer. Izabel, a Chihuahua-terrier mix, is missing one of her front legs. Her owner Bret Ellington recently took Izabel to be fitted for the first prototype of the leg. "I was really excited to be working with the school to build Izabel a leg," he said.
It’s apparently “Bike Month” this May and it’s not going unnoticed. Metro is making its bikes free for a whole month to new riders in downtown Los Angeles. To get a free monthly pass for Metro Bike Share, users need to sign up online any time during the month of May and use the promo code BIKEMONTH17 at checkout. The monthly pass is typically $20 and allows for unlimited rides during each month. Riders’ free month begins the same day they purchase their pass.
Angelenos will soon be able to hop on the train and get to LAX. Metro recently released renderings of the 96th Street station on the 8.5-mile Crenshaw/LAX line. Renderings of the station located on 96th Street and Aviation Boulevard show riders on the ground-level, where they will have access to an escalator or elevator and will be able to move up two floors to the people mover. The people mover, expected to open by 2023, will take them to three stations within the airport.
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".
