From a coffee robot straight out of a futuristic film to a chain that offers six different french fry varieties, new eateries will be available for students to choose from this semester on Guadalupe Street. First to open was Briggo Coffee Haus, an automated coffee shop that uses a robot to serve up specialty coffee. The Austin startup opened in 2011 inside the Flawn Academic Center and closed in 2014. It returned to the area on Tuesday, now located within Moojo’s Ice Cream.
Students returning to campus after winter break may be surprised to see a colorful new addition to the Drag. With a few pails of thermoplastic paint, UT design alumnus Joel Weber and the city of Austin repainted the crosswalk in front of the Co-op colors of the sunset. “The colors are inspired by an Austin sunset,” designer Weber said.
Math senior Marisa Alonzo looked at a giant, luminous globe where one by one, Austin, the United States and the entire world were lit up with a burnt orange glow. This lights display added to the roughly two million lights that lit up the Austin Trail of Lights on Sunday as the event celebrated its fourth annual UT Night at the Trail. “This is my first time coming to the Trail of Lights,” Alonzo said. “(I’ve gotten) a relaxing evening that took my mind off classes and finals.
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".
