“It’s an awesome feeling to be recognized for your work, I worked hard, it’s a good feeling,” said Sridhar of winning the scholarship. The Davidson Institute for Talent Development awarded 20 students across the country fellow scholarships varying from $50,000, $25,000 and $10,000 for projects in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, literature, music and philosophy. The Davidson Institute has awarded more than $7.1 million over 17 years to over 300 students.
Construction of a two-story classroom building is continuing at Bishop Elementary School in Sunnyvale, and students literally watched it take shape earlier this month. Students from all grades gathered Sept. 1 to watch cranes lift and move 45,000-pound prefabricated classrooms into place. When complete, the building will be Sunnyvale School District’s first two-story campus structure.
The city of Sunnyvale is planning to roll out its new food scraps collection program over the next eight weeks, and residents will soon be receiving new garbage carts. The FoodCycle program, when fully implemented, will see residents in single-family homes and mobile home communities begin using a garbage cart split in two. The larger side will be for regular garbage, the other for food scraps that will be collected and turned into animal feed.
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".
