Terra Lopez, a Sacramento native, created an audio exhibit inspired by real-world harassment incidents recounted by Sacramento area women. She hopes the experience will foster compassion. At this past weekend’s California Democratic Party state convention, some attendees put on headphones, entered a dark room — and listened to the sounds of sexual harassment. "Where you goin’? Where have you been all my life? Hey, hey, I'm talking to you!” the voices yelled. “Be grateful!
Three paint companies are gathering signatures for a ballot initiative that would undo a decision by the California Supreme Court this week that requires them to spend millions to clean up lead paint hazards in the state. California’s Supreme Court denied an appeal from Sherwin Williams, Conagra Company and NL Industries, saying they must pay $600 million to address lead paint hazards in a number of densely populated cities and counties.
Thanks to California's warm spell, Yosemite visitors might catch a glimpse of a bear in the middle of winter, which is not as unusual as it might seem. Black bears were recently spotted near Hetch Hetchy Reservoir. Yosemite National Park Ranger Scott Gediman says bears are actually not "true hibernators." "The fact that bears are active this time of year is not all that unnatural and really isn't a cause for concern," Gediman said.
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".
