A year ago at a McDonald's in City Heights, Daveon Scott, then 13, held the last conversation anyone would have with San Diego police officer Jeremy Henwood. That was three minutes before the 36-year-old was fatally shot. Daveon told him he hoped to play basketball in the NBA one day.
I am a wife, sister, cousin and niece of a black man! This social issue has me worrying nightly that someone that I know can be next. I am a woman who wants to one day be a mother to a black boy, but the idea scares me now due to the system he will be raised in.
San Diego City Councilman Kevin Faulconer officially joined the mayor's race Wednesday with brief remarks in English and Spanish. It was his use of Spanish that got people talking on Twitter. People lauded and criticized it, but his Spanish-language remarks shouldn't come as a surprise. First, Faulconer has addressed reporters in Spanish previously.
Unless you worship in a tradition marked by the calendar of saints-like many of our Lutheran and Anglican brothers and sisters-chances are you're not sure what exactly to do with Saint Patrick's Day. Go ahead and register me as a Protestant of the Baptist sort, one typically not committed to the liturgical calendar and feast days.
The unjustified shutdown of San Onofre was engineered by Gov. Jerry Brown. He, the PUC chairman and the CEO of Edison International are the guilty ones. The heat exchangers produced by Mitsubishi were going to be replaced at no cost. So what was the real reason this multibillion-dollar investment was scrapped?
If the Chargers move to Los Angeles, should San Diego look to land another NFL team? And more specifically, would you root for the San Diego Raiders? The question was too provocative not to ask this week before the NFL meetings in Houston changed the course, potentially, of four major American cities.
There's something you should know about this column before you read any further: No one wanted to talk to me about it. Not the principal of Murray Manor Elementary School in La Mesa. Not the owners of a gun shop so close that a student could hit it from campus with a baseball.
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away is suddenly next week in thousands of movie theaters. "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" debuts Thursday, Dec. 17. Many people already have their tickets. Some started waiting in line 12 days before the premiere. Others intend to stay far, far away.
I stood on a stage Monday morning with my hands on my six-year-old daughter's shoulders and her hands on a reading award she had just received. I thought of the parents who would never read another book to those 20 children in Connecticut. I took my hands off her.
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
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".
