San Jose Jazz’s music festivals are great, but they really just pay the bills for the nonprofit’s education programs. And one of those, Progressions, has made a serious leap forward this year to bringing music to low-income students. Progressions, which started as a pilot program in 2011, has jumped from serving 200 students to 1,000 students at five schools in in San Jose’s Franklin-McKinley School District: Santee, Meadows, Kennedy, Stonegate and Bridges Academy.
More than 400 people attended the Wonder Ball, a fundraiser for the San Jose Museum of Art held Sept. 16 that honored longtime supporters Beverly and Peter Lipman. The event was co-chaired by Eileen Fernandes and Cheryl Kiddoo. Guests enjoyed a pre-dinner reception inside the museum, which included a preview of the live auction items. At sunset, dinner was served al fresco in the Circle of Palms between the museum and the Fairmont Hotel, with wines from Ridge Vineyards and Testarossa Winery.
The San Jose Museum of Art honored longtime supporters Beverly and Peter Lipman on Saturday night at the Wonder Ball, the museum’s annual fundraiser. But the Lipmans didn’t want to have the spotlight all to themselves and insisted that the stylish crowd of more than 400 included as many artists as possible whose work makes up the museum’s collection.
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".
