Davis has had a rental-housing shortage forever. We now also have a shortage of homes for sale. The median list price for a house in Davis was $608,000 in July 2016. This July, it climbed to $737,000. If you put 10 percent down on a 30-year fixed-rate loan on a $737,000 house, your annual payments, including property tax and insurance, will be about $52,344 â€” too much for most. In the past few years, no-growthers have driven our apartment vacancy rate to practically zero.
“It is necessary for us to explain the involuntary repugnance we possess for the nature and personality of the Jews.” —W. Richard Wagner, 1813-1883, composer and anti-SemiteAs vile as the beliefs of German composer Richard Wagner were, we should not bury him or hide his works. We don’t need to tear down Wagner statues or stop orchestras from performing his brilliant operas. What we need to do when Wagner is studied or honored is to judge him in full, critically and in the context of his times.
“While you might not be able to fundamentally transform yourself or your existing children, in the near future, you just might be able to play God with your own new, little creations.” —UC Davis Prof. Paul Knoepfler in “GMO Sapiens,” 2015What had been science fiction is now science fact. Last week, a research team, led by a group at Oregon Health and Science University, published the results of a human gene-editing process which is considered a major breakthrough in that field.
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".
