It's not hyperbole to say that 2017 has been a defining year for Texas politics. The state's biggest cities openly warred with the state government in Austin, and many of those who'd built power bases in Austin over the last decade found themselves confused and frustrated by a new environment at the Capitol. While the 85th Texas Legislature fell short of enacting many sweeping policy changes, it set the stage for increased partisanship and rancor in the next couple of years.
It's been a banner year for athletes who hail from Dallas. Given their contributions, it seems like a good time for an updated list of the greatest Dallas athletes of all time. A note about how this list was compiled: While athletes from Dallas' immediate suburbs were fair game for the list, Fort Worth is a bit to far afield for its athletes to make a Dallas-focused list. That means no Ben Hogan and no Rogers Hornsby. 10.
There's no denying that Sunday night's tilt between the Cowboys and Eagles is a big one. The Eagles are 8-1, but untested, with their best win coming over the Panthers on Oct. 12. Beating the Cowboys in front of what's sure to be huge national TV audience in prime time will validate their hot start, solidifying the Eagles as the front-runner for the NFC's top playoff seed.
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".
