The much-anticipated showdown between Mexican boxer Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin this weekend has thrust boxing into the national conversation. A new short documentary screening in San Diego on Thursday tells the story of retired world-champion boxer and San Diego native, Paul Vaden, and the fight that changed his life. The film, "Vaden Versus," highlights the 1999 match where Vaden knocked out his opponent, Stephen Johnson. Two weeks later, Johnson was pronounced dead.
There are nearly 230,000 undocumented immigrants who benefitted from the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program in California. Their future in the state is now uncertain after the Trump administration's decision to rescinded DACA on Tuesday. Under the deferred action program, San Diegan Dulce Garcia was able to attend college, law school and become an immigration attorney. Like many of her clients, her life is in legal limbo because of her immigration status.
As the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program hangs in the balance, a new nationwide survey by UC San Diego political science professor Tom Wong shows DACA continues to have a positive impact on the lives of young immigrants and the economy. The progressive non-profit policy institute, Center for American Progress, released the survey of DACA recipients. –97 percent of respondents said they were employed or enrolled in school.
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".
