Just your above-average, not-so-run-of-the-mill community journalist, in the San Antonio mass communications industry since the mid-90s. I've published my own newspaper (rest in peace, San Antonio Scene), and I'm a self-verified journalisting geek.
The second edition of Mala Luna Music Festival, taking place October 28-29 in San Antonio, not only promises a new location, but a second main stage and more artisans than the inaugural event. The hip-hop and EDM festival was a huge hit in 2016, as more than 30,000 people streamed into the former Lone Star Brewery complex for an event featuring Travis Scott, Steve Aoki, G-Eazy, Kaskade, Tory Lanez, Jeezy, and Rae Sremmurd.
The recently passed City budget and $850 million bond both represent a prime opportunity for District 5 to make strides in improving infrastructure and quality of life, Councilwoman Shirley Gonzales said at a Monday night forum at Our Lady or the Lake University. But her district has a long way to go toward better addressing issues such as affordable housing, reliable transportation, and higher paying jobs, she said.
City and County officials announced late Wednesday that they are pulling out of the pursuit of Amazon’s planned second headquarters, explaining that despite its competitive advantages, San Antonio will not “mortgage [its] future” to win the bid. In a joint letter to Amazon CEO and Chairman Jeff Bezos, Mayor Ron Nirenberg and Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff said Amazon’s request-for-proposals process initially prompted City and County staffs to embrace competing for the $5 billion project.
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".
