Hero: Getting your vein poked with a needle is no fun. For the many patients waiting recently at the Kaiser lab in Terra Linda, it became nightmarish. First, the computers went down and the staff scrambled to keep the lab running. Next, a man having his blood drawn began screaming obscenities. Susan, an interfaith minister in Marin who was preparing for her own lab work to be done, watched the hullabaloo unfold. “The entire waiting room tensed up,” she said.
The account of the Corte Madera Swim Club, which shuttered its doors on December 31 after 50 years, has us celebrating the woman who managed the club and decrying the company that destroyed it. The fancy name, the Corte Madera Swim Club, denoted people paying an affordable fee for the privilege of using the 75-foot heated pool at the Best Western Corte Madera Inn.
Hero: Community activist Damian Morgan, who recently won his seat on the Marin City Community Services District board by one vote, needs our help. The nonprofit organization Cronkite Development,Inc. (CDI), founded by Morgan, is hosting a fundraising event to provide life experiences for Marin City kids—ones that they may never have participated in before, such as a visit to the ocean or a redwood forest.
@YuanqingYang@lenovo Glad you're thinking about shaping the future while your home laptop users aren't able to use their keyboards due to the shift key issue, which is well-known to Lenovo. Please do the right thing and have your tech support guide us through remapping the shift and page up keys.
@lenovo Your customer support and tech service are horrible, even at the supervisor level. And, what's up with the keyboard shift key being in the wrong place. It's all over your forum that it's an issue, yet you won't assist in remapping the keys.
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".
