SANTA CRUZ >> Many immigrants don’t know they qualify for U-Visas — allowing them to seek citizenship while living in the U.S. — until they are threatened with deportation. The visa protects crime victims who suffered substantial abuse and are willing to help or have helped authorities, according to federal documents. The requirement has been a problem with some agencies reluctant or unable to certify victims, immigration attorneys said.
SANTA CRUZ >> A UC Santa Cruz undergraduate student was arrested Saturday on one charge of felony arson after he allegedly burned a poster at a multicultural college dorm’s third floor this week, police said. Six intentionally set fires have scorched bulletins and posters at Oakes College this month. Saturday’s arrest was linked only to one of the fires. Ryan Recalde, 18, lives in one of the dorms subjected to the fires. He was at Santa Cruz County Jail on Saturday night. His bail was set at $25,000.
WATSONVILLE >> Three Watsonville schools were locked down Friday morning while police searched for stolen guns at a convicted felon’s rental home two miles north of downtown. No one was home and no guns were found while police checked the 100 block of Clifford Drive from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Sgt. Mish Radich said. The investigation stemmed from a couple of burglary cases that Radich declined to explain. “Being that it was a search warrant for firearms, there’s a lot of risk involved,” Radich 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".
