As cities and neighborhoods across the nation suffer anguish - and in some cases violence - over controversial police shootings, in Texas there is little factual underpinning for discussions of police use of lethal force. Readily available, consistent, reliable information is virtually nonexistent.
There were more than 40 abortion clinics open in Texas when lawmakers began pushing for the new restrictions. One measure would've required them to meet hospital-like standards - including minimum sizes for rooms and doorways, pipelines for anesthesia and other modifications. Another forced abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of their clinic.
Though the Supreme Court on Monday handed Texas abortion providers a major victory by striking down the state’s most stringent abortion restrictions, House Bill 2 leaves behind a trail of shuttered clinics. Take a look.
Correction appended. When Donald Trump released campaign finance numbers on Monday revealing he had just $1.3 million in the bank at the end of May, collective jaws dropped. His presumptive opponent in the general presidential election, Hillary Clinton, reported having $42 million cash on hand.

Texas voters took part in 22 party primary runoff races - 16 Republican, 6 Democratic - for various state offices on May 24. The winners will move forward to the general election in November as their party's nominees.
Texas is one of several states that held primaries on March 1 - known as "Super Tuesday" or as the "SEC Primary" - and had an outsized say in who moved forward in both the Democratic and Republican presidential nominating contests. Voters decided all but 22 of their party's races for other statewide, congressional, state and legislative positions.
It seems Craig James' call for transparency is being heeded. Hot on the heels of the former ESPN commentator's release of his tax returns Thursday evening and Lt. David Dewhurst's release of his on Friday evening, former Texas Solicitor General and U.S.
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
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".
