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.
A county commissioner, educator, and nonprofit CEO discussing economic disparity on Wednesday said increasing small-business and affordable-home ownership could raise the level of equity in San Antonio, one of the nation’s most economically segregated cities.
You'd be hard-pressed to discern that Emma Faye Rudkin once struggled with confidence. It's not just that her deafness, a result of an infection when she was 3, hasn't held her back. In fact, it's so ingrained in her identity that positive energy toward those around her beams right through it. It inspired her to found the nonprofit Aid the Silent, which helps economically disadvantaged deaf children and teens fulfill their potential.
Lawrence Scott was "once one of those kids that needed help." That's how the 39-year-old described what he was like during his youth - growing up in a tough neighborhood on San Antonio's East Side, surrounded by intergenerational poverty and gang violence. But Scott promised, early on, to make something of himself, and his family members worked to help him stay on the right path.
Catching up with #ChannelZero#ButchersBlock Of course eating a piece of yourself and there being a non-existent staircase leading into God knows where in a desolate park are two things. But debt collectors calling you, threatening legal action. That, too... 😱
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".
