Much to the disappointment of many locals, the 1,800 tickets to Hillary Clinton’s Oct. 9 Mondavi Center appearance promoting her book, “What Happened,” are already sold out, before they were ever available to the general public. Pre-sale tickets for season subscribers, donors and UCD students, faculty and staff started selling at noon Friday and reportedly were sold out by 5 p.m. Ticket sales to the general public were due to begin at noon this Thursday.
I had coffee with a friend this week who just sent her last kid off to college. She said that although she is sad, she’s relieved to know the sadness will fade, having gone through this experience before. I expect to feel the same way when our younger son is off to college in a year, assuming I survive this year. Because when our older son was a senior at Davis High, I started to lose my mind around January.
UC Davis professor Linda Katehi walked over to the black, leather-bound books in her office in Academic Surge and motioned to them. “These are their doctoral thesis,” Katehi said about the many volumes on her shelf. “I was moving them yesterday, (and) was thinking, ‘This is why I joined the university.’ ”Katehi continued, “Every one of these students has a story.” She said her second student, whose book she was holding, is now a fellow with Raytheon.
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".
