One of the most Castro's most prominent retail locations is about to go dark. "The Pottery Barn in the Castro is closing at the end of January," wrote tipster Peter H.We confirmed the news with the store's parent company, Williams-Sonoma, Inc.; next month, the home furnishing store at the northeast corner of Market and Castro streets will ring up its last customer. According to Jess Haro, a public relations manager at Pottery Barn, the store is closing because its lease is set to expire.
Castro neighbors living on Ford, Sanchez and Noe Streets are sprucing up their sidewalks, thanks in part to motivated residents and support from Friends of the Urban Forest (FUF), a Presidio-based nonprofit that promotes, plants and cares for trees across the city. Twenty-two properties on Ford, Sanchez and Noe Streets between 17th and 18th, are greening more than 2,500 square feet of sidewalk space, making it FUF’s largest sidewalk beautification project to date in San Francisco.
This year, residents of Districts 7, 8 and 10 have an opportunity to partake in participatory budgeting, a process that lets supervisors set aside a pot of public money for local improvements that are selected by neighbors.
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".
