Several campus students held a candlelight vigil in front of Sather Gate on Thursday night to honor those affected by the recent series of natural disasters in Latin America. The vigil, which began about 6 p.m., garnered a crowd of nearly 70 people at its peak and provided support and solidarity for people affected by both the 7.1 magnitude earthquake in Mexico and the category 4 hurricane in the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.
The California State Legislature passed a package of bills late Thursday night to address the statewide housing crisis, and two of the bills will likely directly affect Berkeley — which was recently rated the most expensive college town in the country. SB 2, the most controversial bill in the package, would create a $75 transaction tax on real estate paperwork, with funds directed toward the zoning and funding of affordable housing.
Jose Carranza, a campus freshman, stood before a group of about 100 people Tuesday evening with a megaphone to his mouth as he told the group of strangers that he is the youngest of eight children raised by a single mother after his father was deported from the United States. Carranza was at a By Any Means Necessary, or BAMN, rally opposing President Donald Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, with a six-month delay in enforcement.
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".
