A terrifying turn to a traffic stop in Williamson County last week left a deputy fighting for her life while being dragged on the highway. She opened up about the experience and how exactly it all happened. Deputy Tabytha Horseman's workday this past Wednesday seemed like it was starting off fairly normal. "I was initially on my way to do a security check at an apartment complex," Horseman said.
AUSTIN - The growing concern with how robocalls have become an incessant and unavoidable part of technology is frustrating for many people. While this was once an outlet for calls from a doctor’s office or a political campaign, it’s now grown into a place for illegal, fake messages trying to scam people out of their time and money. The solution? Not as clear and easy to figure out as you might think. In 2003, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) created the National Do Not Call Registry.
AUSTIN - The Austin-Bergstrom International airport will be busier than ever after an airline company nearly doubled the number of non-stop flight destinations from Austin. Frontier Airline has worked to expand its services across the nation and Austin is a part of that plan. The airline will add more flights departing from Austin. Josh Flyr, the Vice President of Network and Revenue for Frontier Airline, said his company's relation to Austin has drastically changed.
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".
