While Dec. 25 can mean everything from spending the day with family and faith to searching high and low for an open restaurant, Dec. 26 seems like a typical day on most Americans’ calendars, despite several holidays being celebrated in the shadow of Christmas. In 1966, Maulana Karenga founded Kwanzaa to unite the African American community mentally and spiritually after the Watts Riots, a six-day riot against inferior living conditions the black community faced.
Empty aluminum trays sat on top of the stage at People’s Park, remnants of a meal served the day before. As I walked away from the stage, a man walked towards me. “Is there food there?” he asked, and I said the trays were empty except for a few lettuce leaves. He turned the trays over and I chronicled an estimation of his age and race in case the volunteers I shadowed missed this individual in their biennial census of Berkeley’s homeless.
A recent poll by the campus Institute of Governmental Studies has found that support for a potential re-election bid by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-CA, dropped six percentage points among California voters when they were informed about her age. Support dropped to a 50-50 split when the voters were reminded of Feinstein’s age. Though she has not formally announced her candidacy, Feinstein has hinted at her intention to run for re-election in the 2018 campaign cycle, when she will be 84.
An hour after the Bay Area #earthquake hit 3km ESE of #Berkeley, we learned: (1) magnitudes are preliminary - being downgraded from 4.7 to 4.5, and possibly to 4.4, by USGS - & (2) Santa Cruz residents want to say “hey, I felt it, too!” see the periwinkle box in the Intensity Map https://t.co/3YwdaxwQNy
A working group found, in early 2000s, that the Hayward Fault is scheduled for a 6.7-magnitude earthquake within 30 years. The fault runs north/south in the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area. With that magnitude comes property damage and lives lost, most recently in 1868.
This morning’s 4.5-magnitude #earthquake isn’t an outlier. There were 12 quakes >=4.5 within 150 miles of the #BayArea over the past ten years, the largest being a 6.0 in South Napa (2014) and a 5.5 in the San Francisco Bay Area (2007). https://t.co/YoceJ7ofQa
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".
