Another school year’s here & every parent’s hope is that their kids will receive a quality education. One way to stack the odds in your (& your child’s) favor: live in a community whose schools are being recognized by independent sources for delivering outstanding results. A recent study originally published by U.S. News & World Report cited six high schools in Gregg, Rusk, & Upshur Counties as being among the nation’s best.
Six Flags Over Texas has been an Arlington landmark for 56 years. During that entire time, six different flags have flown above the amusement park’s entrance. You may not have known that those six flags each represented a different era of Texas history. Whether it was Spain, France, Mexico, the independent Republic Of Texas, & even the Confederacy, at some point through the years what we now call the Lone Star State has been directly governed by or in alliances with those groups.
As you might expect, Classic Rock 96-1 often gets early inside info on upcoming concerts. Many times as we’re about to let you know what we know, a promoter will threaten to take legal action if we jump the gun on revealing a new show before they want the word to get out. You’ve seen us post blurred photos of superstars we find out are coming through the region before the lawyers will allow us to provide details. ZZ Top’s September date in the Dallas-Metroplex comes to mind as a recent example.
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".
