Down Highway 180, often on the way to somewhere else, blink and you just might miss it. Between Weatherford and Mineral Wells sits the small community of Cool, Texas. "If you blink past the blinking light, you've gone too far," said Cool Mayor Dorothy Hall. Residents say they never get tired of telling people they're from the coolest little town in Texas. "It brings a sense of giddiness to people whenever you tell them. It's a conversation starter," Hall said. So how did Cool get such a cool name?
And if you ask those who volunteer at Shiloh Field, it thrives on love. Located off Nottingham Drive and Mingo Road in Denton, everything grown on the property is given to those in need. "This is the largest community garden in this here United States," said Gene Gumfory. "Everything that we grow goes back to feeding the homeless." Gumfory, a member of Denton Bible Church, started the garden eight years ago after the idea came to him through scripture. "Jesus said 'Feed my people'," said Gumfory.
Tucked behind stores at the northwest corner of Preston Road and Royal Lane in Dallas, you'll find an unexpected mural with an unexpected story. For the last few weeks artist Dan Colcer has been battling the rain and the heat to complete the mural commissioned by the property owner. Colcer grew up in the 1980s in Communist-controlled Romania. "We, over there, in that moment, weren't tolerant — not even with ourselves," Colcer said. "It was hard for any form of culture to get in."
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".
