Ann McDonald, a crossing guard for The Colony Independent School District, takes her job seriously. When she saw potential for trouble on her watch, she took her concerns to City Hall. The intersection of Nash at Blair Oaks Drive is near a school. A four-way stop brings drivers to a halt, but McDonald worried the stop signs weren't enough. She told NBC 5 she saw a few close calls in that spot and wanted to put drivers on alert for kids walking or riding bikes.
There will be plenty of things to see and do over the 23-day run of the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, but the heart of the show is the kids who go to compete. "I feel confident. My thoughts are, 'I think we're gonna do well,'" said Will Schreck, a senior at Birdville Center of Technology and Advanced Learning in North Richland Hills. Will and 11 classmates in the Automotive Technology and Agricultural Sciences programs are first time competitors at the Stock Show.
A couple in Fort Worth eagerly awaits the end of this week. That's when they may be able to take their baby girl home from the hospital. Emery Ramirez was born the day after Christmas 2017, a gift to her parents Timothy and Jeanette and big brothers Timothy, Junior, and Ezekiel. As expected, though, Emery was born with a heart defect. The Ramirezes knew heart surgery would come soon after their daughter's birth.
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".
