If you've ever been obsessed with the idea of dressing like Frida Kahlo and connecting your eyebrows into a unibrow, next month's event at the Dallas Museum of Art could be your chance to make it a reality. The DMA and the Latino Center for Leadership Development have partnered to try to set the Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of people dressed as Frida Kahlo in one location. It's part of a Frida Fest on Thursday, July 6, her birthday. She would have been 110 this year.
Texas lawmakers have had their share of federal courts ruling against some of their public policies over the past couple of years, including the voter ID law and redistricting maps of congressional districts. But this week marks the 35th anniversary of one of the most significant court decisions, and it wasn't limited to just Texas — the Plyler vs. Doe ruling that states cannot deny undocumented students access to a free public education.
The rising cost of law school tuition can often put the dream of being a lawyer out of reach for Latinos, many of whom come from low-income families and struggle to even go to college. It's one reason the Dallas Hispanic Law Foundation has brought peace of mind to many young Latinos aspiring, perhaps, to be the country's chief law enforcement officer or chief justice someday. Or maybe simply have their own law firm and help other Latinos maneuver their way through our legal system.
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".
