The Corpus Christi Convention and Vistors Bureau wants more people to come see what the Coastal Bend has to offer. That's why the organization decided to go mobile and go to 13 cities in Texas to promote the Sparkling City by the Sea. "This is our way to be more proactive. We saw other cities doing this and it's our way to go to them and talk about our city," said Teresa Rodriguez, CVB chief public affairs and business development officer.
Hundreds of stories have been written about the preparation, devastation and continuing recovery in the four months since Hurricane Harvey hit Aransas County's shore. The Texas Tribune, in partnership with the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, will continue the conversation of the Gulf Coast's comeback during "Rebuilding After Hurricane Harvey: A Texas Tribune Symposium" Jan. 17. The original symposium was scheduled for Dec. 8 but was postponed due to inclement weather.
Traffic has reopened on what is called "old Shoreline Boulevard" for a temporary traffic study, according to City Council member Carolyn Vaughn. In February 2015, Corpus Christi diverted northbound traffic on Shoreline Boulevard to new lanes, which curve away from the sea wall. The other lanes were closed to vehicular traffic to promote a bayfront park, now known as The Water's Edge.
Wow. Congressman Blake @farenthold won't seek re-election after $$ terms of two-year-old sexual harassment settlement recently became public seemingly at random. Settlement not a new incident - I reported on it in 2015. Leaves Texas #D27 wide open for both parties.
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".
