Social media has handed down its latest "idiots in the Lone Star State" verdict: As weary but resilient southeast Texans cope with the biggest disaster in state history, folks in Dallas, Austin and San Antonio are losing their minds over gasoline. In fact, Texas drivers have created a run on resources because everyone ran out to fill up — fearing that when they really needed the gas it would all be gone.
"Nothing bad ever happens at Baylor — and, if it does, we're gonna ignore it." That's the deeply ingrained culture that new President Linda Livingstone must jack-hammer out of Pat Neff Hall. Apparently that's also the attitude of the Canadian Football League's Hamilton Tiger-Cats who announced today that they have hired former Baylor coach Art Briles as the team's assistant head coach for offense. (And look who he could be coaching: Colin Kaepernick, Robert Griffin III and/or Johnny Manziel.)
Editor's note: This column first published on November 4, 2016 and includes details about Reagan Ramsower who will leave his role of senior vice president and chief operating officer in May 2018. In case you missed it, this editorial provides additional info, particularly regarding how the trustees responded to the four questions we've been asking for weeks. Here's an example from that editorial of why having written documentation from the school is critical and clarifying.
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".
