U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers seized more than 50 pounds of crystal methamphetamine Wednesday at the Bridge of the Americas international crossing, officials said. A 24-year-old woman, whose name has not been released, attempted to cross the El Paso port of entry from Mexico at about 4 p.m. in a 2000 Ford Focus, CBP officials said. An officer noticed an issue with the car’s quarter panels and noticed that the woman was acting nervous, officials said.
A man with five previous driving while intoxicated convictions has again beenÂ arrested on suspicion of driving drunk, officials said. Oscar Gerardo Chavez, 35, was pulled over for an alleged traffic violation by El Paso police at about 12:05 a.m. Wednesday in the 2400 block of Alameda Avenue, El Paso Police Department officials said. The 2000 Chevrolet Camaro that Chavez was driving had a defective license plate light, officials said.
The toll roads on the César Chávez Border Highway will be removed by Sept. 1 after the Texas Transportation Commission approved making the highway toll-free. The commission voted unanimously to remove the toll lanes between U.S. Highway 54 and Zaragoza Road during a Thursday meeting in Austin. Texas State Rep. Joe Pickett, D-El Paso, who has pushed for the removal of the tolls, at the meeting he plans to ask the agency that oversees the lanes to stop collecting tolls immediately.
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".
