McALLEN — Nearly three years after his unexpected death, there’s a quality about the late McAllen City Commissioner Scott Crane that seems comically maddening to his older brother.“He broke all the basic rules of running,” said U.S. District Judge Randy Crane, who with his wife, Michelle, spoke recently for the first time in detail about his brother’s death after running in the McAllen Marathon and the legacy that Scott left behind.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Below is a speech that Monitor Editor Carlos Sanchez gave June 2 before the McAllen South Rotary Club at the McAllen Country Club:When I received your invitation to speak, I was asked to talk about news and I jumped at the opportunity because of a growing national debate regarding a new popular political catchphrase known as “fake news.” My industry has been declared an enemy of America by our president and the last Gallup poll on the subject shows that American trust in the...
In more than three decades in this business, I don’t know that I have ever been to a press conference that was more emotional.But as Marissa Castaneda, chief financial officer for Doctors Hospital at Renaissance, said: “They’re good emotions.”DHR called the Thursday press conference to celebrate National Donate Life Month — but in this Easter season of rebirth, this celebration takes on a whole new meaning with a host of new implications for the Rio Grande Valley.
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".
