A lawsuit filed by the San Francisco Bay Area Renters’ Federation, or SFBARF, against Berkeley City Council has been settled in a five-to-one vote, allowing for three housing units to be built in West Berkeley. City Council voted Tuesday to settle the lawsuit, which will provide the original developer with the zoning permit to proceed with his construction and will cover up to $44,000 in attorney fees.
UC Berkeley was ranked third in Money magazine’s list of the 25 “Best Public Colleges for Big Paychecks,” released Thursday. Money ranked each college by taking into account its 20-year return on investment for in-state tuition, according to the magazine’s website. Additionally, the ranking factored in each college’s six-year graduation rate, eliminating schools where less than 75 percent of students could earn a degree within that time period.
Journalist and freelance author Irvin Muchnick filed a lawsuit against the UC Board of Regents on Tuesday, demanding that the regents comply with his request through the California Public Records Act for all documents regarding the death of former Cal football player Ted Agu. Agu died Feb. 7, 2014 during a teamwide training session led by the team’s then-assistant coach Damon Harrington.
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".
