Azle and Weatherford are 20 miles apart, connected by a scenic strip of FM 730. When I say “scenic,” I mean lots of little hills, cedar trees, and cactus, along with the occasional gas station and small business. What’s been missing for years along that stretch – hell, forever – is a great restaurant. People who live between the two cities have had to drive to one burgh or the other to find a quality place to sit down for food.
The money that subsidizes free parking in downtown garages for visitors is dwindling. And unless your last name is Bass or your parking garage serves Sundance Square interests, you might begin to feel like a jilted lover left standing at the altar. Money from tax increment financing, or TIF, has been used since 1995 to pay lease agreements with a handful of parking garages. In exchange for this Downtown TIF, the garages offer free parking to downtown visitors.
He might be politically outspoken, obnoxious, lyrically self-obsessed, and kinda weird in general. Where was I going with this? Oh yeah, nobody can say that Hank Williams Jr. isn’t the best at kicking off Monday Night Football. (OK, I suppose somebody could dispute that claim, but they would be wrong, so screw ’em.) Kudos to ESPN for realizing how dumb they were in 2011 when they told Williams, “Are you ready for some retirement?” He had been singing the opening song since 1989.
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".
