The Texas Facilities Commission’s master plan for the Capitol grounds includes creating a public plaza on the Congress Avenue, much like the National Mall in Washington, D.C. RALPH BARRERA/ AMERICAN-STATESMANAustin leaders find themselves paused between two legislative sessions seeking to overturn city regulations and curtail efforts to raise taxes, and City Hall is both suing the state and being sued over immigration enforcement policies.
AUSTIN, Texas — Among the 20 items Gov. Greg Abbott selected for the month when state lawmakers will return for a special session, one might wonder why a repeal of local tree ordinances made the cut.The answer might be more personal than expected.“I live in the Governor’s Mansion now,” Abbott said last week during a radio interview on WBAP 820. “But, before that, I had a house. I wanted to cut down a very common pecan tree in my yard.
AUSTIN, Texas - A Texas theater’s plan to host two women-only “Wonder Woman” screenings next week has drawn nationwide attention from those praising its female empowerment message, responding to the theater’s smart-aleck responses to people who complained about it and celebrating Austin Mayor Steve Adler for his witty public response to a man who objected to it. But grumblings over the screenings are beginning to turn into complaints that the theater may be violating the city’s equality laws.
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".
