City and county leaders are sending a delegation of El Paso representatives to this year’s South by Southwest Conference and Festivals in Austin. El Paso Commissioners Court on Monday voted unanimously to partner with the city of El Paso to send a group representing the borderland from Mach 10 to 15 to the event that features a series of film, interactive media and music festivals and conferences. The City Council approved the interlocal agreement on Dec. 19.
A $41.7 million expansion of the County Jail Annex in East El Paso has been completed after 18 months of delays, but problems with the showers at the facility are keeping it from being fully utilized. Chris Acosta, a spokeswoman for the Sheriff's Office, said only one of the four new pods is currently in use at the jail annex, which has the capacity for more than 2,900 jail beds. The other three pods are awaiting repairs to fix shower leaks that could extend through March 30.
The new year is bringing good news and bad news for the thousands of motorists who struggle with traffic in West El Paso due to construction on Interstate 10. The good news is that the $158 million highway project, between Executive Center Boulevard and North Mesa Street, is ahead of schedule and is expected to be substantially completed by the end of 2018. The Go 10 project, which began in July 2015, was originally scheduled to be finished in April 2019.
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".
