MCKINNEY (CBSDFW.COM) – Gary Bardwell waited almost a year and a half to see justice for his daughter. “When they finally announced the verdict, my heart was just beating out of my chest,” he said. Bardwell was a key witness in the trial of Jason Lowe, who was convicted of murdering his girlfriend on Wednesday. Bardwell reported his daughter, Jessie, missing in May 2016, after the family was unable to reach her. Police questioned Lowe and found evidence of decaying flesh in his car.
DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – When Dallas resident Sarah Lamb first moved onto Gaston Avenue two years ago, she thought that it was pronounced ‘gah-stone,’ like the villain in Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” movie. She only recently learned that it was named for William Henry Gaston, a captain in the Confederate Army. “He’s more known for being one of the founders of Dallas and giving the land for Fair Park,” Lamb explained.
MCKINNEY (CBSDFW.COM) – Balloons floated over McKinney’s Erwin Park on Thursday, a tribute to Darryl Hawkins, one of the nine people who were killed in Plano’s mass shooting on Sunday. Walkiria Gonzales lives across the street from the Hawkins family, and watched Darryl grow up alongside her own son. “He was that kid, that person who touches your heart and your life. He was that kind of person,” she said. She and her husband described Hawkins as happy and respectful.
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".
