Spring 2016 Volume 14, Number 2 To create effective and long-lasting social change, organizations and the programs they create must in one way or another become embedded in the local community they serve. In the spring 2016 issue of Stanford Social Innovation Review there are two articles that make it clear just how important grassroots engagement is.
Here we go again with someone who doesn’t know that the Walmart case was settled or they are just too unhappy about the outcome. I think it’s about time that Tehachapi will be able to save on fuel, time and aggravation of driving to Lancaster, Palmdale or Bakersfield.As far as P.A. Walker's statement about traffic, that’s going to be taken care of by Walmart. As far as riffraff, come on people.
Tony Marshall is so upset that Walmart is coming to town, and I hope VERY SOON.I’ll keep this simple and to the point. In his letter of “Walmart costs us by way of government subsidies” (June 7), he threw Walmart’s name out there like they are a piece of meat, and he implied they are the only ones that do business in that manner.Our city wants this Walmart because it was voted on, and he is just trying to get people to rally around the flagpole again.
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".
