No one, not a soul, not a whisperer in the wind, not even a lonely ghost in a cornfield has made a pitch to Mayor Ron Nirenberg about a new minor league baseball stadium downtown. But he’s already knocked it out of the park. That ball is gone. “I have not been called,” he said. “I have had no meetings. And I haven’t had any change of heart.”And his heart has always said the city is not going to fund any part of a minor league baseball stadium. Not going to happen. Not as long as Nirenberg is mayor.
One of the strangest twists in the Centro San Antonio saga, which has been marked with strange twists and head-slapping turns, is the consideration of a compensation package for former CEO Pat DiGiovanni. It’s a bad idea for any number of reasons and one the board should drop if the organization has any interest in self-preservation. DiGiovanni has resigned from Centro San Antonio, the nonprofit closely affiliated with the city that he helped create to serve downtown’s interest.
They earn bikes for Christmas, and so much moreFor months, Jayden Griffin had waited for this moment. He had attended classes. Studied every part of a bike. Learned how to ride safely. And on a rainy Saturday morning, he finally built his bike, a sweet blue-and-black ride with training wheels. It is his first bike, and he handled it with care, peering over and under the handlebars, studying the rims and pedals from curious angles. Finally, he sat down, and cautiously placed each foot on the pedal.
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".
