The George W. Bush Childhood Home is a remarkable attraction for the Tall City. This week U.S. Representative Mike Conaway reintroduced a resolution that would endeavor an analysis to make the home a national historical landmark and part of the National Park System. Conaway stated that the home “tells the tale of two presidents, two governors, and two first ladies.”Consider This: While designation could be years away, the opportunity to have the home recognized at this level is huge for Midland.
Tough week to be outdoors. Mother Nature went toe to toe with the Basin and dealt a pretty hefty blow. High winds, hail and now the heat. This is not new for our area, nor is spirit of resiliency and how our communities always seem bounce back no matter who or what throws the punch. I continue to beat the drum for choosing local. No question outsiders will come to our area with lofty promises and guarantees. I encourage you to do your homework.
It would be tough to find someone who had a more fun, adventurous and tiring year than Halifax filmmaker Dave Culligan. Since June 12, 2016, Culligan has posted daily one-minute video segments on Instagram and Facebook, capturing his life in Nova Scotia and beyond. A year after wrapping up the project, Culligan describes what it taught him. What was this experience like? It was tiring, that's what I am feeling now, but it was the best decision I ever made.
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".
