Jim McKeighen says wherever he has lived downtown he’s made a difference. None has been more dramatic than the 100 block of Old Georgetown Street, where he cleaned up a dump in the middle of the block and converted the spot into a beautiful garden. It happened like this. McKeighen bought 170 Old Georgetown Street, a building that had been a corner grocery store with living quarters upstairs for the owner. The building was divided into four apartments when he bought it in 2003 as investment property.
Andy Mills got into the business of preserving hand-hewn log buildings when he lived in Texas, where he saw his first log cabin. “It was half burned and falling down,” he said. But the cabin captured his imagination. Undeterred by its dilapidated condition, Mills bought the cabin, dismantled it and hauled the logs many miles to his backyard in Fredericksburg, Texas. He cut down 20 oak trees and hand-hewed the logs to replace original ones that were burned or missing.
In a petite deep fryer, Luis Gomez drops three empanadas into bubbling oil, watches as they turn golden brown and deftly lifts them out, as a hungry customer practically smacks her lips. The empanada crust is tender, not the least greasy, and the meat filling is spicy and delicious. “A lot of people make fun of my little fire, but I make magic with my little fire,” Gomez said. Customers at Ethereal Brewing in the Distillery District agree, because Gomez is developing a food fan base.
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".
