In 2011, Los Angeles’ Getty Foundation introduced Pacific Standard Time, a collaborative project that aimed to solidify Los Angeles as one of the nation’s top arts destinations. Venues throughout Southern California submitted proposals to the Getty that centered on a central theme: Los Angeles’ post-war arts evolution. The resulting collaboration of 60 institutions was unprecedented for the region at the time.
On Aug. 23, the San Diego Gay and Lesbian News published that the long-standing Hillcrest club NUMB3RS (3811 Park Blvd.) would permanently shutter its doors Saturday, Sept. 10. The news was largely met with dismay from the community, which had supported NUMB3RS for more than 20 years. But there was also shock, especially on behalf of those who ran the venue’s popular goth night, Club Sabbat.
It’s not unfair to say San Diego State University has a reputation. Ever since the college first appeared on Playboy’s list of party schools in 1987, the stigma has stuck. Recently, however, the school has been edging away from its stereotype. This year, it was ranked among the best colleges in the nation by the Princeton Review and U.S. News & World Report. The university has been applauded for increasing graduation rates, and recognized for its study abroad, military-affiliated and LGBT programs.
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".
