All those motorists who complained about their cars being towed from the parking garages in the West 7th Street corridor now have a huge parking lot at their disposal. And the $10 parking fee at Farrington Field is half of what the parking garages charge. So why has Farrington Field’s parking lot looked so, uh, barren? “It has been slow going, but we’re still really optimistic about it,” said James Hoffman, owner of Varsity Tavern, a popular sports bar nearby. There is reason for optimism.
The Near Eastside’s version of West 7th Street or West Magnolia Avenue is the hipster-friendly Race Street, an urban village with a focus on creativity and fun. The mile-long stretch of road between Sylvania Avenue and Riverside Drive isn’t exactly a boomtown. The Great Recession of the late 2000s sucker-punched the original developers, stalling progress for years. But current developer Pretlow Riddick has pushed the train back on track.
Unlike most of my newsfeed, one recent Facebook post was concise and simple: “Songwriters wanting to record a demonstration, demo, or CD should contact SG Studios owner Greg White.”In his post, White explained that his plan was to bring in a crack team of musicians to his Fort Worth studio and schedule a bunch of local songwriters to come in that same day to crank out numerous demos in assembly-line fashion using top-notch recording equipment at a reduced rate.
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".
