SAN ANTONIO, TX -- On a beautiful fall day, Mickey Wakely is doing what we all wish we could in the middle of a Tuesday afternoon. Soaking it all in on a convertible ride with his sister, Cindy. It may look like early retirement, but it is early onset Alzheimer's. Mickey is only 60 years old, but his days as a busy entrepreneur, father and friend are now filled with simpler things like car rides and walks. Cindy Wakely is one year younger and returned home to San Antonio to do a painful job.
A Dallas woman says she's disappointed in the long response time she experienced from police after her car was stolen Sunday. Deborah Stephens was working her evening shift at the CVS near Walnut Hill and Central Expressway. "A man walked in, he wanted to use the phone," said Stephens. "I walked away to help another customer for just one second, and apparently he saw my keys on the counter, and he grabbed them and he clicked to see which car it was." He sped off in her 2012 dark brown Buick Enclave.
DALLAS -- If you have a house full of ghouls and goblins who can't wait for Halloween, the most frightening thing for parents may be our forecast. "We’re super excited for Halloween," said Erin Johnson, who lives in Lakewood and started preparing her kids on Monday that the night they'd been living for may be rained out. It didn't go over well with her 6-year-old. "He told me he was really worried that it would mean he couldn’t go," she said.
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".
