Two pieces of legislation that will help rural Texas veterans and others are making their way through the U.S. House and Senate. U.S. Reps. Mac Thornberry, R-Clarendon, and Rick Larsen, D-Everett, introduced House Resolution 3720, "The Rural Veterans Travel Enhancement Act", to help veterans living in rural areas get to their medical appointments. Sens. Jon Tester, R-Montana, and Patty Murray, D-Washington, introduced a companion bill in the Senate.
Two groups of airmen in training stood in formation in front of the headquarters building at Sheppard Air Force Base Monday afternoon, first called to attention, then parade rest, then attention again. It's not an uncommon sight to see airmen at that location on Avenue G around 4:30 p.m. as they prepared for the end of the duty day and the playing of The Star-Spangled Banner. But Monday, Sept. 18, 2017, was not an ordinary retreat ceremony. It also marked the Air Force's 70th birthday.
For the first time since 2012, Texas Sen. Craig Estes will have a challenger during the Republican Primary in 2018. State Rep. Pat Fallon, R-Frisco, told the Times Record News Monday morning that he will seek to unseat the longtime Wichita Falls Republican from the seat he has held since 1991. The representative and former Air Force officer who was once stationed at Sheppard Air Force Base said Texas Senate District 30 has had an ineffective leader in the Texas Senate, and he wants to change that.
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".
