For Austin Studios, it's quiet on the set. "Right now it's a little bit of a quiet day," said Chris Engberg, studio manager at Austin Studios. Engberg said that's partly because the state's film industry is coming off of a rocky legislative session. "Particularly when there were talks of doing away with the program and potentially even the Texas Film Commission," said Engberg.
AUSTIN, Texas -- Law enforcement officials across Texas may soon be equipped with high-velocity bulletproof vests. The Texas House gave the initial green light to Senate Bill 12, which would create a $25 million grant program to fund the extra protection. The bill is in response to the attack on police in Dallas last summer that left five officers dead and several others injured. Last summer's fatal ambush on Dallas police during an otherwise peaceful Black Lives Matter protest, shook the nation.
AUSTIN, Texas -- The framework for how ride-hailing companies such as Uber and Lyft would operate in Texas is on its way to the governor for his signature. House Bill 100 would override local ordinances already in place in cities across the state -- including Austin and San Antonio. One of the biggest sticking points has been how to best screen drivers. This legislation would require companies to run background checks but would NOT require fingerprinting.
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".
