A senior care center in Collin County is using iPods and MP3 players to trigger memories in Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. At Settler’s Ridge Care Center in Celina, memories and melodies go hand-in-hand. Currently, 14 of the residents with Alzheimer’s or dementia have iPods with custom playlists created for them. The center is hoping people will donate their old iPods instead of tossing them so that each resident can be equipped with a personal playlist.
The Collin County Outer Loop is a project that has been in the works for more than a decade. The county is going section-by-section to purchase land and acquire right-of-ways, currently working on a section from the Dallas North Tollway east to Route 289 (Preston Road) that involves 16 parcels between Celina and Prosper. But there are some bumps in the road. Two offers made by the county to landowners were recently rejected.
A different type of development is underway right off the President George Bush Turnpike and Custer Road in Plano with sustainability at the forefront. The Heritage Creekside development is a 156-acre urban mixed-use project that gained permits back in 2014. Three years later, it is taking shape. Rosewood Property Company has held on to the parcel of land for the last 40 years. “That’s a long time. That’s longer than you should hold land,” said Rosewood Property president Bill Flaherty.
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".
