I can’t imagine having gone anywhere other than UCSB for my undergrad. This is coming from someone who saw “beach” on the list of amenities and figured she’d had enough of New York winters for a while. But our campus, while it is idyllic, is a bubble some of us can’t afford to have un-popped. For a lot of incoming Gauchos, UCSB and Isla Vista are the most diverse communities they’ve been a part of.
I put a lot of thought into the songs that would go into this playlist and their order. I tend to my music library the same way some people tend to their gardens, and in remembrance of the tragedy that befell our university three years ago, I picked what I thought might be some of the most beautiful songs to play you through whatever you may be feeling, to pick you up and remind you that everything will be okay.
Depending on who you talk to, veganism is either the social movement that will solve the world’s problems and usher in a new utopian society where humans and animals live in harmony with a flourishing ecosystem, or it’s an annoying dietary fad that’ll go the way of the Atkin’s diet. My experiences with the ubiquitous diet are manifold, and my motivations are mainly health and environmentally based.
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".
