After a four-year closure, the historic Angels Flight railway in Los Angeles will reopen on Thursday, Aug. 31, 2017. Billed as the shortest railway in the world, Angels Flight was closed in 2013 when one of the two rail cars came off the tracks. The price of a one-way trip up and down Bunker Hill in downtown Los Angeles is set to double from the 2013 rate of $1, though Metro Tap cardholders will only have to pay 50 cents.
A quadriplegic man and his family finished cycling 1,200 miles Friday, landing at the Santa Monica Pier after starting the cross-state journey in Mt. Bachelor, Oregon, about two weeks ago. The Ogden family completed the journey to inspire others to keep moving despite their disabilities and to raise money for people in need of wheelchairs. "We're trying to raise $100,00 for people in underdeveloped countries that need to get off the ground," Nathan Ogden said.
Garry Ferrar quickly steps from side to side, his arms in sync with his movements to the left and to the right. The 28-year-old former fashion photographer is teaching a crop of young dancers the ways of folklore dance at a church in San Bernardino. "Dance means everything to me," Ferrar said. "To me, it's like a medicine. You forget everything in the moment with the kids. Dance can change your mood and the way you feel."
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".
