Starting Nov. 1, bicyclists on the Texas A&M campus will be required to register their bikes with the university - and after the Nov. 1 deadline, the registration costs will increase. Some students say they are happy a registration will be implemented since they have trouble finding bike parking. "Every time I ride my bike up here I always have to walk around," said Josh Kelsey. " I see a lot of bikes that are broken down and haven't been used in a while -- so it's very hard to find a spot."
People in The Oaks neighborhood in Bryan are concerned about speeding. Becky Harris said drivers are constantly speeding through her neighborhood. "Briar Oaks is a huge problem for it. I mean people fly down Briar Oaks," said Harris. Harris worries because she lives two blocks from an elementary school and kids like her granddaughter often play outside. "We have a lot of kids over here ride their bikes or their scooters or whatever they have and it's scary," said Harris.
Hearne ISD will be holding two public meetings to address turnaround plans for their elementary and junior high schools. Due to failing grades, the TEA had recently tried to take over operations of Hearne ISD but the district fought back, and won. Both, the junior high and elementary school received TEA ratings of "needs improvement" this year. The district is holding meetings during two back-to-school nights to give parents a chance to ask questions and give suggestions.
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".
