You get here by boat and only if you want to—Daufuskie Island, South Carolina, the last snip of sand before Georgia, where a conference call is three neighbors jawing out their pickup windows. And there’s plenty to jaw about lately. Residents have been counting the days to the birth of the first Marsh Tacky foal on the island in at least forty years. Last Friday, it happened. There was a new filly on the ground, yet unnamed. She’s blonde but that will change.
The tragic news of Sunday’s mass shooting near San Antonio likely prompted many people — especially Texans — to wonder: where’s Sutherland Springs? Sutherland Springs, a tiny unincorporated town with a listed population of 362 in 2000 by the Handbook of Texas, is about 30 miles southeast of San Antonio. The community is located in northern Wilson County at the junction of U.S. 287 and Farm Road 539.
Sorry, but he is taken again, ladies. Troy Aikman married fashion retailer Catherine “Capa” Mooty on Saturday in Montecito, Calif., according to his social media accounts on which he announced, “Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. & Mrs. Aikman.” WFAA/Channel 8 first reported the news Sunday. The former Dallas Cowboys star quarterback proposed to Mooty in June during a vacation to Lake Como, Italy.
It gives governments an easier path to claim that competitive bidding concerns should allow them to keep records secret. And, businesses can now make the claim, too. Should the law be repaired?

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".
