â€¢ Stay tuned for our next episode of "Behind the Headlines" that will be posted later today for a discussion on this issue. All along Interstate 280 â€” from Daly City to San Jose â€” a 2 1/2-foot-tall Christmas tree-shaped plant is buffeted by the wake of speeding cars. From July to September, it's just about the only plant of that size and shape along the roadside that is still green during the parched summer months.
After decades of dangerous crossings on the University Avenue overpass over U.S. Highway 101, bicyclists and pedestrians will be getting two new bridges linking East Palo Alto and Palo Alto. Construction on the first started in December. When completed in June 2019, the East Palo Alto Bicycle/Pedestrian Overcrossing could be used by 130,000 to 230,000 people each year, according to a feasibility study.
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson conveyed strong resolve regarding the Trump administration's commitment to rebuilding war-battered Syria and removing nuclear weapons from North Korea during a speech Wednesday morning at Stanford University before a crowd of about 300 to 400 people. But Tillerson also made clear that reaching those goals won't be possible through military means alone.
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".
