We talk about keeping Denton weird and offbeat and quirky. The Downtown Mini Mall, destroyed from wall to wall in a four-alarm fire Tuesday morning, did all these things in its own unique way. It was a holdover of bygone Denton, in a secondhand manner of speaking.
Children are making their lists and Santa Claus is checking to see who's naughty or nice. Golden Triangle Mall is bustling with shoppers. Santa, who is spending his first holiday season at the mall in Denton, sits in the center of the mall on his cushioned green bench under a big wooden arbor, eagerly waiting for children to line up to see him. Kids are offered Pokemon balls or reindeer antlers.
Daniel Gould had only been getting into PG-13 movies by himself for a year when he booked his first music show in Denton. The Denton Record-Chronicle reports the then-14-year-old was in a band whose members wanted to play in front of an audience. The problem was finding a space that would let teenagers in. "I thought it would be a fun thing," Gould said. "I found J&J's (Pizza) and they let me play (in the basement.) Then I just kept booking shows."
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".
