No matter how one feels about the city's plans to build an arena in the Union Plaza area, we should all feel saddened at the rush to demolish buildings on Tuesday. The bulk of the blame falls on the owners of eight properties in the Duranguito neighborhood, Roberto Assael and Alejo Restrepo. But the city government, which has tried to position itself as blameless in the sad saga that played out on Tuesday, has been far from an innocent bystander.
El Pasoans will get their earliest glimpse ever of their beloved basketball team. Their UTEP Miners will scrimmage Saturday, Aug. 12 at 5 p.m. in the Don Haskins Center and tickets go on sale Monday. All seats are $10 and all seats are general admission. Proceeds will go to help fund the upcoming exhibition trip to Costa Rica.
Robert Cormell is a really nice guy. I mean that sincerely. I met him and I like him. He is, however, totally unqualified to be sitting on City Council. If all you want is a more dysfunctional local government, elect Cormell. If you want to see our council work together to make the decisions that benefit all of us, elect Cissy Lizarraga, an educated common-sense individual ready to step up and represent all of El Paso.
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".
