AUSTIN - The first and only Muslim sorority in the United States is now coming to the University of Texas at Austin. This week, Mu Delta Alpha is searching for its first class of new members. The chapter's president said they're creating a sisterhood with a goal of shattering stereotypes. "There's this narrative that consistently comes up," said Mu Delta Alpha President Maria Haseen. "Many believe for us to be educated, or for us to be successful, it's somehow an oddity.
Celebrities and artists attended an event Saturday night benefiting those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. The sold-out Strength in Neighbors benefit drew hundreds of people to Parlor & Yard in downtown Austin. Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey hosted the event and artists like Alpha Rev and The Wind and the Wave performed. Strength in Neighbors started as a social media movement after the flooding from Harvey.
Joined by Fiona’s one-year-old daughter, Adeline, the trio will take part in the six-day National Veteran Vehicle Rally, starting in the wine region on Sunday. Their car has been a regular on the national rally scene since their dad, Kevin, bought it in 1964. “Dad did a lot of major veterans rallies right up until he died five years ago, so this will be the first major national rally we’ve done without him,” Ms Fagan said.
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".
