AUSTIN - 26-year-old Daniel Velazquez cannot just say hello. "Let me get one, sister! Don't be like that, you were gonna drive right past me," Velazquez said in a loud voice as he insisted on fist bumps from a YMCA member in a wheelchair. When he got the fist bump, "Bam! Alicia's in the house!" Velazquez said near the top of his lungs. Velazquez has the same attitude toward the members who leave the Town Lake branch facility as well. "Peace out. You came to the house.
AUSTIN - Lisa Jayne's nightmare started out as a fun girls trip in the Dominican Republic with her daughter, Alyssa, and some friends. Two days before leaving the Dominican Republic, Jaynes learned of Hurricane Irma. "I just thought, 'we got to get out of here.' I mean, literally, that was the only thing I kept thinking was, we got to get out of here," she said. So she called JetBlue and tried to change their flights. "And they basically said, 'yeah, you can do that for $2,400,'" Jaynes explained.
AUSTIN - U.S. Representative Michael McCaul called out four of his Texas colleagues on a cable show Monday after they voted against an aid package for Harvey victims last week. "I think it's unconscionable to vote against something like that," McCaul said. The four House Republicans are Joe Barton of Ennis; Jeb Hensarling of Dallas; Sam Johnson of Richardson; and Mac Thornberry of Clarendon. McCaul said he didn't want to judge them.
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".
