In North Texas, football is a family affair. Fathers coach sons, and sometimes, sons grow up to coach with their fathers. In a few cases, they grow up to coach against their fathers. Vance Gibson is head coach of the Frisco High School Raccoons. His team's opponent on Friday night: the Texarkana Pleasant Grove Hawks and two coaches he knows all too well. "Changed their diapers. I haven't done that with any other coach that I know, other than the ones we're playing tonight," Gibson said.
They say the city's trying to annex land before a new state law takes effect in December. The law, signed by Governor Greg Abbott during special session, allows property owners to vote on whether a city can annex areas outside of its limits. Last week, the City of McKinney sent letters to about 150 property owners in Collin County, notifying them the city wants to annex their land. “I opened it up and my heart just sank,” said homeowner Tamlynn Clyde.
An empty platform is all that's left after city crews took the statue of Robert E. Lee down from the Oak Lawn Park where it stood for 81 years. Tempers flared at a rally Saturday afternoon where supporters and protesters clashed. The demonstration came two days after the confederate monument was removed. The rally began with a memorial. Two flower arrangements were placed on the pedestal. It was a symbolic service to mourn the removal of the statue, and what supporters say is a censorship of history.
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".
