East Texas is loaded with great things to do, especially in the summertime. From lakes & parks to zoos & shows, June through September’s “events calendar” is packed with options you & your family or friends are sure to enjoy. The best way to check out the details: pick up the 2017-edition of our Summer Fun Guide. It’s free, & you can grab a copy at several locations from Tyler to Longview & in between.
The Texas summer is here, & that means trying to find ways to keep cool on hot days. A family roadtrip to Schlitterbahn Waterpark in Galveston will do the trick, especially when it’s on us! Classic Rock 96-1 is giving away more 4-packs of free Schlitterbahn admission-passes all this week. Just listen during our daily 96-Minute Music-Marathons, then be ready to call-in & win! We play all that commercial-free classic rock two times every Monday through Friday, starting at 9am & again at 1pm.
This has been one of those jammed packed weeks for me. I’ve only been able to escape for lunch once so far, but since it’s Friday, I’m determined to treat myself to something special today! If you’re thinking the same thing, may I suggest the weekly special at Lola’s Handcrafted Sandwiches. Look at this combo of ingredients: hand-carved roast turkey, the cheesy goodness of warm brie, sweet onion bacon jam, & fresh arugula, all served up on homemade ciabatta.
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".
