When Toys R Us announced it would close more than 800 stores due to financial difficulties, it marked the latest chapter in the struggles of many retailers to keep up in the age of internet retail. It's a climate that has forced mom-and-pop retailers to adapt, too. The secret to success, say some local shops, is you have to roll with the punches. Recycled Books has been a Denton staple for 35 years. When Don Foster opened the store, he had no idea how big it the store would become.
A group of women from Denton County is using their talent to do good. The women's knitting group at Robson Ranch meets every Tuesday afternoon, and together they have knitted untold numbers of blankets, hats, gloves and other items. "Truly, it's become the highlight of my week," said Nancy Chorba. "I really look forward to this." With knitting needles in hand and balls of yarn on the table, there are just two rules for this group: no politics and no religion.
FLOWER MOUND — Preservationists say restoring an historic log cabin in Flower Mound will cost nearly $1.5 million. The town recently approved a master plan for the Gibson Grant Long Prairie log home, meaning it can apply for government grants to help defray the costs. In 2015, developer Curtis Grant discovered the log structure encased inside a home he was about to demolish. He gave the house to the town, which purchased the land it sits on.
I’ve watched probably 50 Spring Training games, and by far the biggest topic (and most confusing and arbitrary) is mound visits. MLB Rule Changes That Will be in Place for 2018 Season http://on.nbcdfw.com/0J1bfl1@NBCDFW
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".
