“Each one of them has got a story.”—Barney Smith, a former plumber in San Antonio who has been making art out of toilet seat lids and hanging it in his Toilet Seat Art Museum for fifty years. According to KSAT, Smith is about ready to retire, but he wants to make sure his museum—which has 1,321 toilet seats on display—falls into the right hands first. Not A FanSenator Ted Cruz said on Sunday that he doesn’t support the U.S. Senate’s latest attempt to repeal Obamacare.
We’re slouching toward the 2018 elections, and so far the race for Texas governor doesn’t look particularly competitive. After Democratic darling U.S. Representative Joaquin Castro downplayed recent reports that he is considering a run last week, the Democrats’ lineup looks extremely weak. Whoever the Democrats get behind, they’ll need to do it fast, because they already have a lot of catching up to do.
“At some point, God is telling you to move.”—U.S. Representative Jeb Hensarling to CNBC on Thursday. Hensarling, a Dallas Republican, said taxpayers should not have to pay for at-risk homes that have continually flooded. He suggested that homeowners in flood-prone areas should either take steps to flood-proof their homes or get up and leave instead. Court DateA three-judge panel in the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals will hear arguments Friday on Texas’s anti-sanctuary city law, Senate Bill 4.
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".
