Among San Diego State University’s graduating class of 2015 is 91-year-old Elisabeth Vito. Earlier this month, the Oak Park resident put on her cap and gown, sat among her fellow classmates from the College of Arts and Letters and received her bachelor’s degree in German Studies. Vito first began taking classes at SDSU more than 10 years ago as a way to stay social and continue her education.
This weekend brings a celebration of Latin food, music — even an iconic Argentinian leader — plus a salute to "Fiddler on the Roof." San Diego Repertory Theatre stages a beautiful production of "Evita," the hit musical by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber. It follows the story of Eva Peron, a woman who went from poverty to the Argentinian First Lady by age 27. Adored by her people as a champion for the poor, she became one of the most powerful women in the world.
This weekend brings prestigious chamber musicians, art-themed films and two very popular pop crooners. August in San Diego means it's time for La Jolla Music Society’s SummerFest, a prestigious chamber music festival that brings world-class artists and ensembles to La Jolla. This year brings pianist/twin sisters Christina and Michelle Naughton, the Regina Carter Quartet and Finnish virtuoso Olli Mustonen.
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".
