For many competitors and supporters, the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo is tradition. "Oh, my, yes, it was our vacation. That was it!" said Peggy Brown, sitting inside the Justin Arena with her husband, Rob Brown, while watching the opening day competitions. They've been coming to the Stock Show since they were kids. "We had the run of this place," Peggy Brown said. In an old black-and-white picture, 10-year-old Peggy was seen brushing her steer.
At the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, we’ll witness the best athletes in the world competing for gold, but even the best athletes had to start somewhere. Some of the newest athletes in a favorite winter sport in North Texas get their start on the ice at the Dr. Pepper StarCenter in Farmers Branch. There are ice skating classes for all age groups and the youngest students attend the Tots class.
He is a master of the ice, a curator of all things cold, he is a Zamboni driver—and his name is Don Fernandez. “Are we ready? Okay,” Fernandez said as he opened the gate to the rink at the Dr. Pepper StarCenter in Farmers Branch. He prepares the ice for skaters of all skill levels. It’s a job that he said he fell into after working as a hockey official. “Somebody asked me, ‘hey, you want a part-time job running the Zamboni?’” Fernandez recalled.
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".
