Not ready to hang up your flower crown just yet? In case you didn't know, San Francisco in 1967 played host to a counterculture movement that changed music, fashion, politics, art and Bay Area history. Dubbed the Summer of Love, it was a time when 100,000 free spirits convened in the neighborhood Haight-Ashbury in pursuit of peace, love and happiness. Fifty years later, SF looks back on that psychedelic period with a series of exhibits, events and shows…and yes, the festivities are still going.
The names of 4,484 U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq are currently being painted on the walls of the Tenderloin's tastefully-nicknamed corridor. The Name Project, a 78-by-30 foot endeavor, is just one of many murals that have recently transformed the alley into a piece of art. The strip of pavement between Geary and Shannon Streets hopes to find a new nickname in "San Francisco Veterans Mural Alley." It's currently covered in nearly 30 murals painted by U.S. Veterans.
Most cats don't like taking a bath, and Reginald, a long-haired Persian cat, is no different. But this is no ordinary cat video. In fact, Reddit users are calling it the best cat video on the Internet to date. It's a bold claim, but after watching what transpires during the bath and after -- we have to say we agree. Check out the viral gem above brought you by Animal Planet.
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".
