IRVING -- Even training to fight fire can expose firefighters to potential dangers. Controlled burns still have the potential to do the unexpected, while also releasing the carcinogens believed to cause cancer in firefighters at a higher rate than the general population. That's why the new $4 million training facility in Irving is being hailed as an invaluable tool when it comes to protecting the public. A ribbon-cutting is set to christen the five-story tall structure at 10 a.m. Friday.
IRVING - Forty-eight days are all that separate the Irving Music Factory from opening night with Dave Chappelle. Each minute is precious as the construction site is still a bundle of dirt and dust crawling with upwards of 1,000 workers operating around the clock to make the August 31st deadline. “There is a lot of work to be done and a lot of heavy lifting to do,” said Developer Noah Lazes, with the Ark Group.
ARLINGTON -- Garage sales might be a good way to unload some clutter or unneeded items, and there are many treasure shoppers who make a sport out of bargain hunting. But Arlington City Hall will hold a Town Hall meeting at 6 p.m. on Monday to discuss a new proposal limiting garage sales in the city. The proposal would allow two sales a year per property with each sale limited to 48 hours.
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".
