The state does not instruct nursing homes whether to evacuate. But the agency requires a facility to have a disaster plan telling workers what to do, whom to contact and how to transport patients in an emergency. The plan should also guide nursing home staff through the steps needed to shelter safely in place. Texas leaves the writing of these plans to nursing homes and assisted-living facilities. State inspectors review the plans but do not keep a copy of them.
Children First will likely challenge the state’s decision in court, Kelly Evans, an Austin lawyer representing the school, said Friday.“It would be catastrophic and a real tragedy, particularly for the parents and families of the students who have seen real improvement in their educational outcomes, to be forced to return to the traditional school districts in Dallas and Houston that have proven to be abysmal failures in educating low-income African-American students,” Evans said.Most...
R'reanna Wooten's dad was murdered five years ago. Her mom is mostly absent. The Dallas Morning News reports the 11-year-old lives in public housing in the city's poorest neighborhood; her grandmother is afraid to let her play outside and worries about stray bullets. No wonder that in the mornings before R'reanna headed to the worst elementary school in Dallas, her grandmother prayed: No fights with other kids. No trouble with teachers.
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".
