One thing that draws me to the medium of photography is the way in which photographs seem to change with time. What was captured today can represent something or someone completely different tomorrow. For the last three years, I’ve had the opportunity to create many, and edit virtually all, of the images published by the Rivard Report. The task of compiling the year’s most compelling photographs always brings with it a sense of the passage of time, and with it varied emotions.
From the red intensity of Travis Park’s new Christmas tree to the multicolored spotlights along the Museum Reach of the San Antonio River, that holiday glow is easy to find downtown this time of year. The River Walk is adorned with its traditional lighted cypress trees, while the Pearl is decked out with a multitude of white lights. A huge, decorated tree occupies the central green space of the redeveloped brewery complex, while Main Plaza and Market Square have their own trees.
With snow falling across San Antonio on Thursday evening, it was beginning to look a lot like Christmas in South Texas. The National Weather Service forecast snow during the evening hours before midnight, with clouds and lows near 33 degrees and north winds of 5 to 10 mph. A winter weather advisory was in effect until midnight, and total nighttime snow accumulation of less than a half-inch was possible. Along with the snow came power outages.
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".
