AUSTIN - The new toll lanes on MoPac Express are supposed to make traffic less congested, but city engineers said they are causing a new problem. Congestion is now increasing on Cesar Chavez Street -- the only roadway drivers have to get on the MoPac express lanes out of downtown. "When people are trying to exit during the afternoon peak after work, they're spending a lot of time trying to get out of their garage and then they wait on Cesar as well,” said city traffic engineer Robin Osborne.
But with that, comes the risk for potential fires or injuries. The Austin Fire Department said Texas ranks number one for the most grease and cooking fires on Thanksgiving Day. Fire departments in the United States respond to more than 1,400 fires on average on Thanksgiving day, more than three times the average of any other day during the year.
AUSTIN - We usually gather at places of worship and churches to seek peace and safety. But following the massacre of more than two dozen people in Sutherland Springs, church leaders are stepping up security. The Williamson County Sheriff's Office held a security summit for faith leaders Sunday at Celebration Church. Leaders from hundreds of local churches were there. Sheriff Robert Chody said he wants to teach them what to do in an active shooter situation and how to create a security team.
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".
