Many formerly quiet East Bay suburbs have drawn lots of new residents the past few years because of well-priced housing. One growing city, Tracy, boasts a vibrant downtown loaded with exciting shops, eateries — and a Vintage and Antique Street Faire held twice a year. The fall version of the show will happen Oct. 7.
Kids of all ages are certain to have an engaging time at Train Days on Sept. 16-17. The event – now in its ninth year – is held on the grounds of the Los Altos History Museum, and attracts many families from across the Bay Area. Visitors can mingle with model train collectors and eye elaborate railroad layouts and scenery, scaled renditions of prototypes, whimsical engines, as well as cars with steam, lights, even sound.
It’s one of the oldest shows in one of the Bay Area’s most charming historic districts. The Niles Antique Faire & Flea Market will return Aug. 27 for its 53rd year, and the event could draw as many as 30,000 visitors. More than 225 merchants will assemble on the streets of the Fremont district where silent movies featuring early stars Charlie Chaplin and Broncho Billy Anderson were once produced. You will find antiques, collectibles, jewelry, plants and garden items, crafts, toys and oodles more.
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".
