A controversial new city policy proposed for fixing sidewalks came before the San Diego City Council’s Rules Committee Wednesday but was kicked back to staff for more “financial and legal analysis.”The proposed policy would force the city to act faster and take more responsibility for fixing broken sidewalks. The policy states that the cost of replacing unsafe concrete sidewalks will be borne entirely by the city.
A parking lot near the center of the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar is surrounded by barracks which are home to some of the 3,000-plus service members. It will soon be a stop for a driverless shuttle bus. “The initial route starts at the barracks, where we’re standing now. And it goes along the flight line where most of the work is happening,” said Major Brandon Newell, chairman of mobility transformation for the Marine Corps.
A new study shows San Diego has a gap in rates of homeownership among ethnic groups. But it is not as was wide a gap as most of the country. The company Apartmentlist.com released a study last week that showed, nationwide, there is big gap between homeownership rates for whites and for other racial groups. When looking at Americans between the ages of 25 and 54, white households had a home ownership rate of 64 percent. It was 41 percent for Hispanics and 34 percent for blacks.
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".
