Those all too familiar yellow cabs are now a thing of the past on Waco streets. The Yellow Cab Company of Waco announced on Friday that as of midnight, they are no longer in business. Bill Kemp started the business back in the 70's. He says over the years, Waco has been good to his business. "At one time we had 16 cabs doing 400 calls a day. Here recently we've had 4 or 5 cabs running doing less than 100 calls per day. We just can't keep doing that." Kemp said.
A candle light vigil was held Thursday night for 16 year old Savannah Lewis of Copperas Cove but it was hardly a somber occasion. Friends, family, neighbors and classmates arrived to sing Christmas songs and share some holiday cheer, while Savannah who was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma a year and a half ago watched from her window. Tears streamed down her face as a choir from Copperas Cove High School lead the crowd in an assortment of Christmas favorites.
The devastation in Puerto Rico is hard to comprehend without seeing it first hand. It's been two months since Hurricane Maria and still many parts of the island are in ruins. Slowly but surely there are signs of improvement but it's not coming quickly enough for many who are without water, without power without adequate health care and quite frankly without much hope. The death toll from Maria officially stands at 51.
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".
