The San Antonio River and the $384 improvement project carried out over 15 years that gave the city a 15-mile linear park and the celebrated Museum and Mission Reaches has been selected as the winner of the 2017 Thiess International Riverprize, it was announced Tuesday in Brisbane, Australia.
I want San Antonio to compete at its best to win the new Amazon headquarters, but if we somehow pull off a miracle and win the lottery, don’t ask me to work there. I regularly shop on Amazon, yet would not want to be one of those 50,000 employees it’s talking about hiring in a new headquarters city. I like the way the company performs for consumers, but don’t ask me to become one of the company’s stressed out, high-octane performers. No matter, really.
There isn’t a single city in the United States with perfect credentials for hosting Amazon’s proposed new headquarters and the 50,000 jobs and $5 billion of investment that will come with the move. That’s why imperfect San Antonio should go all out to make the case for Amazon doing exactly what Toyota did a decade ago: Set aside its initial short list of destination cities for its new state-of-the-art vehicle manufacturing facility, and instead put it in San Antonio.
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".
