The Cake Boss is coming to town. Bartolo “Buddy” Valastro announced plans this week to open San Antonio outposts of his Buddy V’s Ristorante and Carlo’s Bakery family of restaurants at The Shops at La Cantera. Construction on the 7,500-square-foot Buddy V’s is slated to start in the next week and a half, but an opening date has not been set for either. Valastro has earned a legion of fans since making a nationwide debut on the reality show “Cake Boss” in 2009.
It’s the best of both worlds as a pair of local institutions come together next month. Diana Barrios, head of the Los Barrios restaurant group responsible for Los Barrios, La Hacienda de los Barrios and Viola’s Ventanas, said her family is set to add a new property to their portfolio with the acquisition of the Scenic Loop Cafe & Bar at 25615 Boerne Stage Road. “We’ve never ventured out this way. We’re very excited,” Barrios said.
Network Rail’s Western Route Managing Director Mark Langman has re-pledged NR’s commitment to making the coastal route at Dawlish more resilient. In an exclusive interview with RAIL, Langman said that NR does not have a preferred plan at the moment for defending the line from bad weather and the effects of climate change, but that it would be sufficiently protected to “remain there in our lifetimes”.
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".
