SAN JOSE — Amid outcry over housing affordability in Silicon Valley, two former council members are pushing a ballot measure that would allow 910 new homes on empty east San Jose land in defiance of city plans setting it aside for industry and jobs. The proposal pits San Jose’s need for more industry and jobs against its lack of affordable housing, and has sent shock waves through the city’s political firmament.
SAN JOSE — A 25-year-old woman was arrested Friday in connection with the vandalism of a controversial Christopher Columbus statue at City Hall, San Jose police confirmed on Sunday. The suspect, Gina Darlene Gonzales, was arrested, issued a citation for vandalism and released at the scene, according to police Sgt. Enrique Garcia, a spokesman for the department.
To much fanfare, San Jose this week announced that Dave Sykes — a longtime City Hall veteran — will take over the top administrator job when the current city manager retires next month. But some had been wondering whether Economic Development Director Kim Walesh, another top executive in the city manager’s office who has worked for San Jose since 2003, was a contender for the top job. As it turns out, Walesh didn’t apply or express interest in the top City Hall job.
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".
