AUSTIN - Austin is a city that encourages artistic expression in many ways. You can see it on the roads, through music and inside business walls as well. However, there is one mobile business -- the only one of its kind in Texas -- trying to break the mold in a unique way. Ericka Lamanna has lived all around Texas during her life, before settling down in Austin about 12 years ago. During college and even throughout her career, art has been a big part of her life -- specifically pottery.
AUSTIN – State Rep. Dwanna Dukes (D-Austin) is currently facing 19 extraneous acts as a part of a misdemeanor trial scheduled next month. Now there is a new, peculiar layer to the case involving a psychic. According to KVUE’s partners at the Austin American-Statesman, prosecutors say Dukes spent $51,348 on an online psychic from December 2014 to January 2016, which is about $1,000 a week. This filing does not clarify whether Dukes paid for this out of her own pocket or used state money.
AUSTIN – Of the more than 1,000 bills passed by the Texas Legislature during its session this year, more than 600 of them go into effect Sept. 1. Once of the more controversial laws set to go into effect has been shelved for the moment. Senate Bill 4, the “sanctuary cities” bill that was signed into law by Gov. Greg Abbott in May, has been temporarily blocked by a judge over concerns it would erode public trust.
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".
