ARLINGTON - Protesters are calling for a boycott of a parade honoring Martin Luther King Jr. because of the involvement of Texas Governor Greg Abbott. Abbott has been named the honorary Grand Marshal of the North Texas MLK Parade, a new event planned in Arlington. The parade is intended to become an annual tradition, bringing five North Texas counties together on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. But activists say the governor's participation has led them to boycott or protest the event.
ARLINGTON - An Arlington mom is thankful after an outpouring of help from strangers helped to locate a lost blanket that is priceless for her family. "It's chevron on one side and plain orange on the other," said Michelle Colopy. The blanket is a full-sized throw, and it's orange and white. It is warm, but its value to the Colopys is because of who it belonged to: her infant son, Elijah, who died in 2012 from SIDS. "He had it every day of his little life," Colopy said.
HURST -- A Hurst police officer narrowly avoided being hit by a vehicle Sunday when it lost control on the icy road. "It was pretty close, I'd say a couple feet. From my hand to the tire, less than that," said Officer Jonathan Cramer, who experienced the close call. Officer Cramer was responding to an accident on State Highway 121 in Hurst. A car had crashed in a slick spot.
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".
