Admission to The University of Texas at Austin gets more competitive every year. Starting in 2019, being near the top of your class and earning an automatic spot will get more competitive too. The university announced Friday that students hoping to enroll as undergraduates in the fall of 2019 will be eligible for automatic admission if they are in the top 6% of their high school graduating class. The previous standard was the top 7%.
A mom from the Spring Branch neighborhood of Houston reached out to WFAA on Wednesday, less than 24 hours after the electrocution death of her son, to warn others wading through the flooded remnants of Hurricane Harvey that they could be tempting the same fate. “I just want to save a life,” Jodell Pasek told me as we sat in her front yard in plastic lawn chairs because her home was in the dark, without power after the storm.
DALLAS — A mom from the Spring Branch neighborhood of Houston reached out to WFAA-TV on Wednesday, less than 24 hours after the electrocution death of her son, to warn others wading through the flooded remnants of Hurricane Harvey that they could be tempting the same fate. “I just want to save a life,” Jodell Pasek said as she sat in her front yard in a plastic lawn chair because her home was without power after the storm.
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".
