A Waco paramedic critically injured after being struck at an accident scene by a vehicle whose driver is accused of being drunk is recovering in Temple after doctors amputated his left leg this week. Rory Barros underwent 14 surgeries to try and save the leg, but it was determined he would have a better quality of life if it was amputated. The amputation was performed earlier this week at Baylor Medical Center in Temple.
The United Way of Waco-McLennan County is changing the way it funds local organizations, and the Salvation Army, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Waco, the YMCA of Central Texas and the Community Cancer Association are feeling a pinch as a result. Funding for the Boys and Girls Club, the YMCA and the cancer association will be cut by 20 percent or less, but funding for the Salvation Army will be cut by 83 percent next year, from $148,140 to $25,000.
A McLennan County woman with a history of DWI arrests and convictions dating back to 1998 could face as much as a life sentence if convicted after she was indicted Wednesday for driving while intoxicated (habitual), authorities said. The indictment against Barbara Jean Poston, 45, stems from an accident on Sept. 9 in which her pickup overturned and came to rest in the Median on State Highway 6 near Hallsburg.
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".
