Kelsey Lee, 21, expects to be tethered to roughly $30,000 in student loan debt when she graduates with her bachelor's degree in social work next year from San Jose State University. That number will likely increase, just as the cost of her tuition has over the years—and most jobs in her field require a master's degree. "When you get out you can't start fresh," Lee says. "You're stuck. And you don't know if it was worth it.
Conditions for the city’s Black sanitation workers were difficult to the point of deadly. Memphis was paying full-time employees a meager minimum wage, then just $1.60 an hour. But it wasn’t until two men died on the job in February 1968 that protests broke out, with hundreds of sanitation workers taking to the streets to demand their right to unionize. Most remember the 1968 strike because it drew Martin Luther King Jr. to the hotel balcony where he was assassinated.
It’s not just any Saturday when I show up to Penrose, Charlie Hallowell’s trendy wood-fired kitchen in Oakland, Calif. — it’s Saturday, Feb. 14. As bearded men in flannel sip red wine and Champagne with their sweethearts, I head to the bar solo. And after I tell the bartender that nobody else will be joining me, I throw him off again and order a Pimm’s Cup from the menu. His reply, “Great choice.
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".
