Two men were arrested after robbing a 66-year-old man in the Castro district Wednesday night. Police said the 9:30 p.m. incident in the 300 block of Sanchez Street started when three suspects came up behind a man who was walking on the street, grabbed his bag, which contained fruit and aÂ laptop, and knocked him down. The three then fled southbound on Sanchez. Two of the suspects, who were described as black males ages 18 and 21, were taken into custody. Police havenâ€™t released their names.
An effort is underway to have a street named after Bubbles, the queer San Francisco artist who was shot dead Saturday morning, September 9 in the Tenderloin district. As of Wednesday afternoon, more than 750 people had signed a petitionÂ to rename Myrtle Street, near the site where the 44-year-old was killed, renamed. Bubbles, who was also known as Anthony Torres, was reportedly gunned down after being chased from the New Century Theater strip club at 816 Larkin Street at about 3 a.m. Saturday.
San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee issued a statement Friday on the death of Anthony “Bubbles” Torres, the LGBT artist who was fatally shot over the weekend in the Tenderloin neighborhood. “While initial reports do not indicate that the killing was motivated by hate, we are nonetheless shocked and saddened that one of San Franciscoâ€™s most colorful activists has been lost to violence,” stated Lee. No arrests have been announced, but the mayor said police are “working vigorously to solve” the case.
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".
