Cheryl Weiden has a good reason for wanting to curb air pollution through her anti-idling campaign in Los Altos. “The reason I did all of this is because I’m a mom,” she said. “I didn’t know when they were little what they were going to be facing if we don’t get control on the climate. (Our) kids are not looking at a very happy future.”The Los Altos resident launched the educational campaign in the spring in an effort to limit drivers from leaving their car engines running while not in motion.
After learning the importance of caring for people while growing up in Los Altos, Mike Taber hopes his new role as the Mountain View Police Department’s first community outreach officer will be his legacy when he retires. “I’ve always really cared about people,” said Taber, the son of a nurse and a fireman.
Research on SEaB’s FLEXIBUSTER to be conducted at U.S. Naval Base in Ventura CountyIn order to tackle food waste concerns, UC Davis researchers are collaborating with the SEaB Energy company to install sustainable energy technology at a United States Naval Base in Ventura County this fall. Making its way from Southampton, United Kingdom, SEaB’s FLEXIBUSTER is an anaerobic digester (AD) designed to convert organic waste into energy and heat for immediate use, according to the SEaB website.
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".
