Bryan city leaders are one step closer to a solution to the so-called stealth dorm issue. City officials are defining the 'stealth dorms' or 'agg shacks' as 'Detached Shared Housing' or DSH for short. A Planning and Zoning subcommittee hosted a public forum Wednesday to present their plan to amend the city code in order to regulate DSH. The plan would require developers of large homes, who want to rent out rooms, to apply for a permit with Planning and Zoning approval.
The tax rate valuation of 62.9 cents per $100 dollars was unanimously approved by Bryan city council Tuesday night. The same rate as last year. Despite not raising the rate, council members believe they will still be able to pay for everything needed in the next fiscal year. City officials believe future residential development will bring in more revenue, so they didn't think raising the rate was necessary. Bryan residents and businesses can expect to see their water rates rise starting October 8th.
The Bryan-College Station chapter of the American Legion, Post 149, welcomed the National Commander of the American Legion to speak in front of its members Monday. Denise Rohan, who was elected National Commander at the groups national convention last month, took the podium at an open forum to discuss key issues facing veterans today. She is the first female to ever hold the position in the veteran group's history.
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".
