SANTA ROSA (KPIX 5) — A North Bay city could give police more power to crack down on crimes associated with the homeless. But critics say it’s criminalizing people who live on the street. Santa Rosa Mayor Chris Coursey said the city has tripled the amount of money it spends on homelessness in the past three years. Coursey says this is a sign that what they’re doing now isn’t enough. He hopes stronger enforcement will make a difference, but not all council members are on board.
OAKLAND (KPIX 5) — Oakland is taking action to deal with all its trash. A homeowner tells us he’s fed up with seeing his neighborhood used as a dumping ground. Angel Patino is a volunteer for Oakland community organizations. Every third Saturday of the month they head out for the day to collect trash. He’s helped clean up 67,260 pounds of trash since November. “You can smell the urine,” Patino said as he gave us a tour of his neighborhood on Thursday.
OAKLAND (KPIX 5) – The city of Oakland has a sweet deal: $25,000 for artists to help promote tourism in the city. With that much cash sitting on the table, some artists are taking a pass. Along the side wall of Aswad Hayes’ t-shirt company is a mural dedicated to every person who lost their lives in Oakland in 2013.
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".
