Steve Kaplowitz is a Texas Longhorns fan. Buzz Adams is an Oklahoma Sooners fan. Every year, they go the Red River Shootout at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas to watch the game and make fun of one another’s team as part of one of college football’s oldest rivalries. And this year, we’re sending one winner and their guest to go along with them!
The Lady on the Hill has taken top honors for the entire state of Texas in a piece published by Architectural Digest this week. Opened in 1916, the grand Neoclassical El Paso High School, designed by firm Trost & Trost, takes the nickname “the Lady on the Hill.” The school overlooks R. R. Jones Stadium, the first major stadium built of concrete in the U.S. — Architectural DigestEl Paso High joins 49 other public high schools on the list — one from each state.
Searching Google is a great way to find information on the Internet. Duh. The Google Search App Facebook page isn’t for that. But, that doesn’t stop a lot of inquisitive but not so smart people from typing their Google search into the comments section of the Google Search App Facebook page. There are enough of these that a guy managed to make a song out of all the Google searches people had mistakenly submitted as a comment on the app’s Facebook page.
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".
