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.
San Antonio’s new City Council voted unanimously Thursday to annex almost six square miles of mostly undeveloped land in southern Bexar County. The annexation will help the City preserve existing land use and stave off undesired development in the mainly rural community, said Councilwoman Rebecca Viagran (D3), whose district will absorb the area. The land lies south of current city limits, south of Neal Road, west of Pleasanton Road, north of Loop 1604, and east of Applewhite Road.
They screamed and cheered. They held up cardboard masks bearing the likenesses of their favorite elected leader. The hundreds of people gathered at Sunset Station on Thursday warmly greeted new Mayor Ron Nirenberg and the new City Council as part of a reception organized by two chambers of commerce. News 4 sports director Don Harris enthusiastically introduced Nirenberg and the Council members as they strolled down the staircase.
The City’s Historic and Design Review Commission approved by consent agenda separate projects affecting the San Pedro Creek and the former Malt House restaurant on Wednesday. Local design firm Muñoz & Company sought a certificate of appropriateness as part of the plan to reimagine the San Pedro Creek between Fox Tech High School and the old Stockyards as a linear park. Work to improve the creek channel began in late March.
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".
