ODESSA, Texas (Local 2/Fox 24) - After months of anticipation, the second annual Tap Into Downtown was finally held this Saturday. While it's tons of fun for people around the Permian Basin, for local and out-of-town businesses it's an opportunity. "We are one of the places that is in touch with downtown. We just went brick and mortar, we are down the street," says Erik Prado from Rooster's Rolling Diner, a local food truck in Odessa.
ECTOR COUNTY, Texas (Local 2/Fox 24) - For the past few weeks it's been dry and windy, and it's a condition ranchers in the Permian Basin don't want. Most ranchers in the area can own hundreds to thousands of acres of land, and fires can easily pop up anywhere on their property. "Anytime the wind gets up, you kind of don't rest very easy and think about where there might be a fire, and what might be going on," says Bill Wight, a rancher at YT Ranch in Odessa.
ODESSA, Texas (Local 2/Fox 24) - The second annual Tap into Downtown Odessa beer and wine festival is this Saturday. With thousands expected to come, and it being on St. Patrick's Day, security is a main focus. This year's festival was pushed back after being rained out last winter. Since then, Downtown Odessa Inc. has been planing for a different time. "A lot of planing goes into a big event like this especially when it's open to the public," says Downtown Odessa Inc. event coordinator Haley Howey.
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".
