AUSTIN -- A Travis County judge ruled the University of Texas can move statues of Jefferson Davis and Woodrow Wilson because the plaintiffs had no standing to bring a case. Judge Karin Crump denied the request from the Sons of Confederate veterans for a temporary injunction to halt the move. The case was brought after a months-long campus debate. Students started a petition in June to remove the Davis status, claiming that his racist views do not represents the university's values.
AUSTIN - Located in the middle of East Austin is something you don't see much of around the city: 208 acres of clear, green, undeveloped land. "It is rare," said Martin Barrera, redevelopment project manager for the City of Austin. "What's especially unique about this is that the city owns the land." But what makes it unique has also been a thorn in the side of neighbors. "If it had been owned by a developer, it probably would have been developed by now," said Barbara Scott.
AUSTIN - The Austin we know today is a lot different from the of Austin 20 years ago. In 1997, downtown wasn't a destination and it certainly wasn't a place where a lot of people lived. And chances are in the next 20 years, Austin will change again. "If you double in population every 23 to 27 years for 180 years, one, it's constant and therefore it's predictable," said former Austin Mayor Will Wynn. "And so not to plan for something that's perfectly predictable is irresponsible."
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".
