I realized about 15 seconds too late that my best friend is a present person — 15 seconds after I had given her a stupid gag gift that would’ve made gift-indifferent me laugh, and one that made gift-loving her grimace and sink. I felt bad. I knew I had messed up. I wanted to do better. And so the next year, I had a perfect gift planned out and then forgot to buy it.
The holidays really are the most wonderful time of the year. Finals are over, you’re finally registering the feeling in your tired, frozen toes, and it’s high time to fill your heart with loved ones and your stomach with hot chocolate. Whether you’re going home for the holidays or staying in Berkeley, we’ve compiled some gift ideas to help you give a special thanks to the important people in your life — and even to yourself! But the holidays are more than just about presents.
Candid discussion of mental health is often stigmatized across cultures but we at The Daily Californian are here to give voice and provide resources to those struggling with mental health. We all understand the struggles of being a student. We have to balance work, paying rent, academics, social life and extracurriculars. We’re here to offer support and a place where asking for help isn’t something to be ashamed of. Mental health is something you should prioritize.
Apparently something is going wrong with @UCBerkeley’s listservs and allowing students to reply all. Patiently waiting to see how long it takes someone to send out a Carol Christ meme https://t.co/Q8BRM7xKlL
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".
