AUSTIN - Hundreds of people turned out to the Domain in Austin on Sunday for the 8th Annual CASA Superhero Run. Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASA, is an organization that advocates for abused and neglected children in Central Texas. They do so through CASA volunteers who are appointed by a judge and trained to make recommendations on the child's behalf in the court system. "They speak to a judge about what this particular child needs,” said CASA Director of Communications Callie Langford.
AUSTIN - Pest control companies in Austin said it has been a busy past few weeks. They are attributing the uptick to the recent rain from Harvey – along with the warm and rainy past few years we have had. "It has been ridiculous,” said Monica Malone, with J & J Pest Control in Austin. They have been getting hundreds of calls a day from people asking for pest control help. "The roaches have been unreal,” said Malone. “The rodents have been up." Causing major damage.
And Tuesday, the company unveiled three new versions – including the iPhone X (pronounced “ten”). Inside the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple's Cupertino, California campus, it first introduced the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. One takeaway from those phones is portrait lighting on the cameras. Another is a glass front and back on the phone. Twitter users sarcastically pointing out – they can now shatter the front and the back. But one of the more popular features is the wireless charging.
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".
