Adrian Cobos has been in the foster care system for about half of his life. By his count, the 16-year-old has been in at least six different homes. He has more than a dozen siblings that could not be kept together after they entered the foster care system almost a decade ago. Two siblings live in Oklahoma, while some of his older brothers and some of his sisters live in El Paso, he said. The last foster home he lived in had a few other boys and he recalled it as being noisy.
The Downtown streetcar project is $1.3 million shy of its $97 million budget about a year after the city and the agency overseeing the project fell victim to an email phishing scam. Raymond Telles, executive director of the Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority, which is overseeing the construction of the project, said the agency has absorbed the loss through conservative financial planning throughout the course of the project.
The fate of a proposed multi-million-dollar bond proposal in the Socorro Independent School District and seven state constitutional amendments rests with voters Tuesday. The cities of Horizon, Socorro and Vinton also have municipal elections on the ballot for voters in those area. El Paso County elections officials said 8,932 voters countywide cast ballots during the early voting period that ended Friday. Those numbers are down from November 2015, when 11,406 ballots were cast during early voting.
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".
