The protections offered under the Obama-era DACA program are set to expire on March 5th, but, federal judges have blocked that from taking effect amid ongoing litigation. To help the so-called "Dreamers" keep those protections and get all the paperwork filed to do so, an organization is brought some counter-culture to the Hub City through drag. These drag queens are making a difference. Club Pink hosts the "Drag for DACA" event, in part with the "Mi Casa Es Su Casa" network.
The argument over school choice has made its way to the March primaries. On the Republican ballot is Prop 5, which begs the question, should Texas families get to choose the type of school their child attends? Nancy Sharp with Lubbock ISD said 'yes' with some stipulations. "Parents ought to be able to have choice, but if you want to choose something other than the public education system, then that ought to be at your own expense."
While vaping has been around for a few year, smoke shops in Lubbock are seeing an uptick in sales of little vape devices called the 'JUUL.' "We currently don't have any more and its hard to even get them. They just sell out," Head Hunters manager Brenden Mauricio said. "People come in and we have to keep restocking weekly," store associate Dylan Pena said.
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".
