Steak and wine lovers are traveling to downtown Bryan by the thousands for the weekend for the 11th annual Texas Reds Steak and Grape Festival which kicks off Friday night. The average attendance for the festival is usually around 10,000 people, but The Downtown Bryan Association said that based on ticket pre-sales -- this could be a record year for attendance. It could also mean record numbers for downtown businesses. The Bistro on Main Street has only been open about two months.
HEARNE, Tex. (KBTX) A small grass fire slowed traffic on Highway 6 south of Hearne Thursday afternoon. The fire started just north of Abco Auto Parts on Highway 6. News 3's Clay Falls was driving by right after it started and saw multiple people stop to help put out the fire. Good Samaritans used a fire extinguisher to control the flames.
FEMA is setting up shop at the Hearne Municipal Airport. The federal agency is staging trailers, manufactured homes and portable housing that will help in the recovery effort for those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Hearne's City Manager says several companies will be helping out and that could bring up to 100 new jobs. On Thursday the Hearne Municipal Airport was staying busy with traffic but not from airplanes.
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".
