The work starts most nights around 10 p.m., when Monroe drops her son at daycare and drives the nearly two hours to a cavernous UPS warehouse jutting out of the dark. Dressed in sweatpants and boots, she takes her place at the belt and waits for the gears to wake. If the conveyor starts churning before 2:45 a.m., she knows she’ll get a lunch. If it doesn’t, she knows she’ll be toiling through the arrival of the morning light. She was lucky to get this job and is grateful to have it.
After the verdict had been read and the courtroom had mostly emptied, she drifted down the center aisle, in the tie-dyed shirt and headband she wore through most of the trial. “I’m appalled,” Tracie Rice-Bailey whispered to no one in particular. “I’m appalled.”On November 2, a jury concluded that the city of Sacramento doesn’t punish homeless people by enforcing a law against sleeping outside.
I don’t know about you, but I always get a little giddy when Sacramento shows up on screen. Maybe because it’s so rare. Occasionally we book a cameo gig, like when 2005’s Walk the Line brings the Johnny Cash story to Folsom Prison for the country legend’s famed live concert. But even these bit parts can be a little deflating. Take this year’s Mike White drama Brad’s Status, in which Ben Stiller plays the head of a Sacramento nonprofit who’s jealous of all his more successful college peers.
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".
