CEDAR HILL — Voters will decide Tuesday on three propositions worth $45 million that Cedar Hill officials say will help manage the needs of a growing population and bolster the town’s city center development plan. The ballot breakdown looks like this: $10 million for street and drainage improvements, $15 million for park and recreation facilities, and $20 million for a new, 46,000-square-foot library. If voters approve the projects, the town will issue general obligation bonds to finance them.
CEDAR HILL — City Council members sat in their usual perches last December underneath a giant, star-shaped chandelier. The manager of this town southwest of Dallas ran through the agenda and mentioned one item he called a “biggie.’’Indeed it was big: a plan to pump millions of future tax dollars into street, water and sewer improvements for Cedar Hill’s sagging downtown.
A Dallas psychiatric hospital is under renewed scrutiny after a 13-year-old girl reported this month that she was raped there by a fellow patient. It's the latest crisis at Timberlawn, the east Dallas hospital where patients come to stay because of conditions ranging from depression to psychosis. In 2014, a suicidal patient hanged herself with a torn bedsheet. In 2015, inspectors cited the hospital after a sexual encounter between patients.
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".
