VIDEOAs you’ve likely heard, the Summer Olympics and Paralympics are coming to the Los Angeles region in 2028. Many people have asked what our transit system might look like 11 years from now — so we published a blog post in August that got a lot of interest. We’ve since turned the post into the video above with the help of my videographer colleagues, Joe Lemon and Murillo Goncalves. Bon appetit!
I flew into LAX from Sacramento on Monday and grabbed a window seat on the right side of the plane. We landed on the northern runway, so it was a good seat for Crenshaw/LAX Line spotting. A couple pics:This is almost the entire line from just north of Leimert Park Station at the bottom of the screen to the junction with the Green Line at the top right. I drew a line in Photoshop to help follow the rail line — the orange line is to the right or bottom of the Crenshaw/LAX Line route.
The World Series is returning to Los Angeles! Metro is very proud to offer free bus service to those attending the Fall Classic that will pit the Dodgers against the Houston Astros or New York Yankees. World Series Games 1 and 2 will be in Los Angeles next Tuesday (Oct. 24) and Wednesday (Oct. 25). If necessary, Game 6 would be in L.A. on Tuesday, Oct. 31, and Game 7 on Wednesday, Nov. 1.
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".
