You'll see a new name in North Texas' booming data center marketplace, although it's not a result of a new entry on the scene. Denver-based ViaWest today announced it will become Flexential after it was acquired for $1.675 billion in August by Peak 10. Previous names ViaWest and Peak 10 will disappear with the rebrand. ViaWest has seven local data centers and 112,000 square feet of raised space in North Texas, the ninth-most in the region, according to recent Dallas Business Journal research.
Last year, visitors from every state and 105 countries used Airbnb in Dallas. As the hotel alternative continues to penetrate mainstream traveling culture, more and more homeowners across the country are putting their extra rooms - or entire properties - up for short-term rent. With 2017 in the books, the San Fransisco-based tech giant tallied up the top rental nights for its markets across the country. Dallas has, for whatever reason, been a slower adopter of Airbnb usage than other Texas markets.
The rebirth of technology retailer Circuit City will put a North Texas company in line for technology work across the country. Best Buy's former nemesis, set to relaunch on Feb. 15, has named Frisco-based Skinny IT as its installation service provider. Earlier this month, Skinny IT acquired Installation & Services Technologies, Inc. (IST), a Kansas city, Missouri-based company that specializes in on-site technology deployment.
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".
