Mountain View could soon be the latest Bay Area city to build an all-inclusive playspace known as a Magical Bridge Playground. On Tuesday night, Oct. 3, elected leaders approved a contract committing $1 million to begin a larger fundraising push for building a playground at Rengstorff Park. Ever since the first Magical Bridge playground opened at Palo Alto's Mitchell Park in 2015, the concept has quickly caught on among other Bay Area cities.
A strip mall at the bustling corner of El Camino Real and San Antonio Road is now up for sale with an asking price of $42.5 million. The site known as the World Savings Plaza is currently being leased by CVS, Sprouts Farmers Market, Wells Fargo and several other commercial tenants. The commercial brokerage firm Marcus & Millichap announced the sale of the 2.8-acre site last week. The call for offers will close on Oct. 12.
The costs of Mountain View's experiment with rent control now has a clear price tag -- about $160 annually for almost every apartment in town. At a Monday, Oct. 9, meeting the city's Rental Housing Committee unanimously approved a proposed $2.5 million budget for launching the citywide drive to regulate apartment rents. This budget will be brought back to the committee for final approval on Oct. 23. Mountain View's new rent control program is at its most labor-intensive stage.
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".
