BERKELEY — For many Berkeley residents, Telegraph Avenue refers to a four-block section from Dwight Way to Bancroft Avenue, home to a diverse array of businesses and often a magnet for a wide range of people. It’s an area that served as the base for many counterculture events of the 1960s and 1970s — events that had a strong impact and helped forge the identity of the city of Berkeley.
OAKLAND — Local writer Hilary Zaid has completed her debut novel “Paper Is White,” which is set in the 1990s Bay Area and written in Rockridge. The story combines love, humor and a search to answer probing questions about who we are, how important are the silences of the past and how much do we share with the ones we love.
Saul’s Deli marks 30 years as owners look to futureBERKELEY — Saul’s Deli has been a North Berkeley institution for 30 years, and its owners are quietly considering its next phase. Finding a successor to carry on the Saul’s tradition is something that Peter Levitt and Karen Adelman, co-owners since 1996, have been thinking about for some time. “Really, we’ve been looking for someone to take over for a really long time,” Adelman said.
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".
