Democratic Congressman Lloyd Doggett and Democratic State Senator Jose Menendez held a town hall in San Antonio on Saturday. Henry Galarza, a 95-year-old WWII veteran, was one of dozens of veterans who attended to discuss community and national issues at that town hall. Galarza was in attendance with the hopes of getting help with his hearing. He says that his pleas for new hearing aids have gone unanswered. “They’re not doing very good. I have trouble,” Galarza said. “I can’t hear my wife.
The University of Texas at Austin is lowering their automatic admission rate to just the top 6 percent of a high school's graduating class. The move has some San Antonio students turned off. “I was thinking about UT as one of my top colleges right now,” said Jack Ran, a senior at Alamo Heights High School. He's lucky. He won't be affected by the change, but he did say that many of his junior friends will be.
SAN ANTONIO - Daniel and Hannah Hall will have to start from scratch. They moved to San Antonio with just two suitcases. “We sat down that night, talked and prayed about it, and decided that this was probably the best choice for us and we decided to move to San Antonio,” Daniel said. The expecting parents say that the choice was an easy one after seeing the destruction that flood waters left behind in Houston. “I have never seen anything like it, ever,” Daniel said.
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".
