If there is a ‘proper’ way to go to prison, it must be to sashay right in because that’s exactly how a woman who specializes in correctness recently entered the Cleveland Correctional Center north of Houston. Colleen Rickenbacher, an etiquette expert by trade, was asked years ago to talk to some prisoners about manners. "I was petrified. I am going to go to prison and do this?" she said. It went so unexpectedly well that Rickenbacher now returns 10 to 15 times a year.
FORT WORTH — The private matter of going to the bathroom was the subject of a very public debate in Fort Worth Tuesday. “I believe this policy is ill-advised and it’s wrongheaded," said Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, who arrived at Fort Worth ISD headquarters to personally blast the superintendent’s guidelines allowing transgender students to choose the bathroom that corresponds to their gender identity. The policy also includes provisions to allow a transgender student to use a single stall restroom.
At the Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery, we encountered Cheree Barrett as she uttered an especially emotional, “Hello Jame.’” The greeting came exactly a year after Cheree said a final goodbye, “I know I am never going to be over it. I miss my son every day. And I am so proud of him," she said. Her son, 33-year-old Army Sergeant James Barrett, served two tours in Iraq.
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".
