Burlingame had a most unusual beginning. First came a country club and then, gradually, a town came into existence. From the club’s creation in the 1890s, the emphasis was on a place for well-to-do folks to relax and stylishly recreate. It started in San Francisco, in the Market Street office of Francis G. Newlands, son-in-law of the late William Sharon. It was in September of 1893 when a group of prominent San Franciscans gathered to create an oasis down on the Peninsula.
In 1890, at the age of 10, Lillian Remillard, an Oakland girl, was sent to New York. Local music teachers who admired her soprano voice and believed her a prodigy, encouraged the move so that she might seek a professional singing career. Her family owned the Remillard Brick Company. Enormously prosperous, the firm had provided bricks for the walls of many San Francisco buildings, including both the old Palace Hotel in 1875, along with the Phelan and the Flood buildings.
Russian-American diplomatic relations seem to be a trending topic. But then again, such has been the case for years. Consider the scenario in September 1951, when diplomats representing 51 nations converged on San Francisco for the signing of a peace treaty with Japan to officially bring an end to World War II in the Pacific. Delegates to the conference met in San Francisco’s War Memorial Opera House, which had been meticulously transformed for a month-long conference.
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".
