Tennis balls popped. Three young girls chased a soccer ball across the green lawn. The creak-creak of the swings rose above the riders’ squeals. But tucked away from the grassy fields and wood-chip lined playgrounds in the north end of Garfield Park lies a different kind of kid space, reserved for children of the city who have died — some by accident, others at the hand of another.
They will be singing “Let It Snow” in South Pasadena on Saturday and mean it. The city’s Recreation Division is hosting a “Snow Day” from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Garfield Park, 625 1/2 Stratford Ave., South Pasadena. Snow will be trucked in for a day of winter activities, such as sled runs, crafts, snow play and even a Tot Land for younger children. Tickets cost $10 each and are available online. On the day of the event, wristbands will be sold for $15.
When the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority replaces its fleet of more than 3,200 buses, rail cars and locomotives, the agency will have created 22,051 jobs. Unfortunately, those jobs may not go to Americans. Many Metro contracts are inked with foreign manufacturers from Japan, China and Europe because American companies no longer produce this kind of rolling stock.
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".
