In Denton County, leaders are trying to make the ride smoother for commuters. But as in most North Texas communities, progress comes with a little pain. A road widening project on South Mayhill Road is one of close to a half-dozen in Denton, which in the short term bring delays and detours, but in the long term are designed to improve traffic flow.
The hospital where doctors and nurses tried to save a Little Elm police detective shot during a standoff one year ago, is honoring his memory. First responders and hospital personnel gathered Wednesday at Medical City Denton to honor the memory of Detective Jerry Walker. On Jan. 17, 2017, Walker responded to a call for a man with a gun. That man, Rudy Garcia, shot Walker, who was taken to the Denton hospital where he died. Garcia was killed when other police officers returned fire.
The city of Denton is considering tougher parking space requirements for apartment buildings. City leaders say a lack of sufficient parking is a growing problem, especially in neighborhoods around the University of North Texas campus. "Yeah, it's very frustrating," said UNT junior Simeon Idahosa. "It's hard to find spots, every day of the week." Denton Mayor Chris Watts says many apartment buildings do not have adequate parking spaces, so residents are forced to find on-street parking.
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".
