Following a 3.6 magnitude earthquake in Westwood on Monday night, and a 7.1 magnitude earthquake on Tuesday afternoon that toppled buildings and claimed hundreds of lives in Mexico, earthquakes seem like a more pressing danger than ever. Researchers at the Southern California Earthquakes Center are actively investigating how and why earthquakes occur to better prepare Los Angeles for its next tremor.
Last year, former assemblymembers Mike Gatto and David Hadley were working in their respective offices, crafting policy for the state of California. This year, Gatto and Hadley have swapped their offices at the California State Assembly for new ones at USC. Gatto, a Democrat, and Hadley, a Republican, are the two former elected officials who now comprise the bipartisan USC Unruh Institute of Politics’ Legislators in Residence program.
Alumnus Rick Caruso, who graduated from USC in 1980, received the most distinguished alumni honor, the Asa V. Call Award, at the 83rd annual Alumni Awards. Nikias presented Caruso with the award on Saturday. The award signifies commitment to USC and to the community. Caruso’s ties to USC stretch back to his times as a Trojan. The Carusos have donated more than $50 million to the school.
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".
