Local mom-and-pop shops are a beloved staple in nearly every town. Offering a more intimate shopping experience than a corporate franchise, small business is frequently considered “the underdog” as far as commerce is considered. Not afforded the mega-budget and structure of larger enterprises, these businesses appear to have the odds stacked against them if they are not intentional about how they stay at the forefront of consumers’ minds.
The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) has lifted its warning sanction on the university, according to Baylor President Linda Livingstone. The announcement, which was made Tuesday morning in an email to the Baylor community, marks nearly a year since news first broke that the university would be put under warning by the accrediting body.
Underrepresented at the polls and in office, Texas women are taking stand against the lack of political participation in the state. According to the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, a research organization that looks at public policy as it affects women today, Texas is among the worst states when it comes to political participation.
Looking through photos in my old IPad and found this picture. While some may focus on the Baylor flag I’m holding, let’s take of moment of silence for the fact I’m wearing FLIP FLOPS to a cap and gown ceremony. This is who I was in high school lol. ILY high school Didi. https://t.co/sLxUxAPRTU
The number of political science textbooks confirming the inevitability of electing a female president makes me happy. #YesSheCan

Running a small business is hard. Issues of time and budgeting often put digital branding efforts on the back burner. Read my newest column about why this is a costly mistake and why business owners should consider hiring a pro:

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".
