If you're reading this, there's a good chance that you're ready to decompress after a long week and are seeking some gentle guidance. If so, we've got you covered. Know any antiquarian map collectors? The San Francisco Map Fair begins tonight and runs through the weekend. There's also Creative Night Market at the SF Mint, which will have live music, food and arts celebrating the city's Filipino community.
With the scalding temperatures gone, it's safe to venture back outside. Starting tonight at 6, Zeitgeist celebrates its year-old legacy status with a weekend of music, art and food. Tonight is also the launch of the Castro Art Walk, which will take place the first Thursday of every month.
The last big holiday of the summer is here, and there are plenty of local events to enjoy between barbecues and parades. Score a free clam chowder bread bowl at Pier 39 on Friday to help power you through the opening day of San Francisco's Comic Con in SoMa, where you'll rub elbows with Samwise Gamgee, Lieutenant Uhura and other fan favorites. If that's not enough entertainment, swing by DNA Lounge in the evening for the return of Tom Gun LIVE!, an immersive Top Gun stage reenactment.
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".
