Twenty-five years ago, a kind and lovely young woman took a kick to the head. A sneaker print remained on her face 10 hours later when a neighbor found her lying on a concrete floor. That cold-blooded kick changed Kelly Davis forever. Who knows what motivated three young men to go on a crime spree that ended with Kelly’s beating on July 20, 1992, in her Arlington garage. Trial testimony revealed the attackers weren’t drunk or tripping on drugs or hellbent on revenge for some perceived slight.
“This article is not true … so WTF?” is one of several online comments I received after a recent story. In “Confessions of a Scofflaw” (May 3), I wrote that “tickets generated by red light cameras aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on,” going on to say that motorists who receive a citation after their vehicles are photographed running through a red light could file those tickets in the circular cabinet without repercussion.
Henry the Archer’s latest effort highlights the best qualities of this three-piece band led by a New Jersey native turned Fort Worth transplant. Passion, punk, a willingness to be different, killer rhythm tracks, great guitar tones, and, most of all, frontman Richard Hennessy’s distinctive vocal style are all present and accounted for on Zero is Is a Number, a collection of eight original alt-rock songs.
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".
