Hungry? Lilian Võ has you covered. Through her latest initiative, The Sticky Rice Project, Võ served the Vietnamese American community a fresh take on intergenerational bridge building, home, identity, remembering, and cooking—using food as the medium. The 2017 summer project culminated on August 19 with the release of a Vietnamese Recipe Storybook called The Sticky Rice Project and celebratory launch party at the Yesler Community Center.
Let’s start by saying his name and reflecting on the fact that Tommy Le, a young man from our community, your community, this community, would now be a recent high school graduate. Let’s start by honoring Tommy’s efforts and the support that he received. Let’s recognize the cultural, racial, and societal barriers that stood in his way, many he managed to overcome, until he was stopped dead in his tracks. Tommy Le’s death seems to serve as a metaphor for our community’s silence.
If you see a waist-high metal cylinder zipping along a hotel corridor and riding the elevator on its own, do not be afraid. It could well be Aura, which will be at the service of guests at five hotels here in the next 12 months. Aura - which stands for Automated Room-service Associate - is a robot that is able to find its own way around the hotel to deliver room amenities such as linens and bottled water to guests.
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".
