Newsflash: There's a guy in San Antonio named Jake Danklefs who makes one-of-a-kind sneakers in his home studio. We're not talking run-of-the-mill, mass-produced kicks from Foot Locker. Dank & Co. shoes are like little works of pop art for your feet. Know what looks really nice on his shoes? Orange and white stripes, baby. Whataburger, Texas' fast food joint with a rabid cult following, has partnered with Dank & Co. to create three unique pairs of Whataburger branded sneakers.
When Greg Hall decided to start playing live music again, he was picking his way through songs he hadn't played in 10 or 15 years. He told the audience, "Here's one I wrote in 1994 and haven't touched since 1996 ... let's see how it goes. " That might sound capricious or -- at the very least -- questionable, but for Hall, it was like meeting up with old friends he hadn't seen in awhile. He still loved them. He believed in them. He didn't realize how much he'd missed them.
It's not uncommon to hear live Americana music emanating from the Love Field food court on a Friday afternoon -- at least not since the Texas Music Project partnered with the airport and the city of Dallas to install a state-of-the-art stage there last year. But, it's not every week that travelers stumble upon a free performance by one of Texas' most treasured singer-songwriters. That's part of what made Gary P. Nunn's set on July 7 so special.
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".
