Laredo City Council voted unanimously on Monday to create an ordinance that would establish a public animal neglect registry, similar to a sex offender registry. This will be the first registry of its kind in Texas, according to Councilman Alberto Torres, who has been working with the Animal Care Facility and Animal Care Services Advisory Committee on authoring this ordinance. He got the idea from a few states that have created laws such as this.
Laredo one of the fastest-growing metro areas in the U.S., according to IHS MarkitOver the next 30 years, Laredo’s population is expected to boom — outpacing most other cities in the country. In a study prepared for the United States Conference of Mayors, information group IHS Markit projected that Laredo’s population will grow 79.4 percent from 2016 to 2046 — from 272,300 people to 488,400. Total metro population across the country will grow 24 percent in this time frame, the study reports.
The FBI descended on a host of city and county government buildings Wednesday, executing search warrants as part of a public corruption probe that one councilman said has cast a dark cloud over Laredo and Webb County. “It is embarrassing, but we welcome this investigation,” said Laredo Mayor Pete Saenz at a news conference held at the Webb County Courthouse.
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".
