Alice Walton, the daughter of the late Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton, remains the wealthiest person in Texas with an estimated net worth of $38.2 billion, according to the latest ranking from Forbes magazine. Walton’s riches put her at No. 13 on the Forbes 400 list of richest Americans, topped once again by Microsoft founder Bill Gates at $89 billion. Amazon’s Jeff Bezos moved up to No. 2 this year, with $81.5 billion, passing Warren Buffett, who held that spot for 15 years.
RadioShack, a mainstay of the downtown business community for decades, is leaving its riverfront home this week and will consolidate what’s left of its operations at a distribution center in north Fort Worth. The bankrupt company’s headquarters staff, down to about 50 people, will relocate from the west end of a campus it built along the Trinity River, now owned by Tarrant County College, to space in a warehouse on Terminal Road north of the Fort Worth Stockyards, which it also once owned.
Tax incentives have become as common as bluebonnets and traffic jams in North Texas. Name a big new development—the Toyota campus under construction in Plano, Nebraska Furniture Mart in The Colony, the Facebook data center at AllianceTexas—and you’ll find that tens of millions of dollars in property tax breaks greased the skids to clinch the deal. We call this economic development, the cost of doing business with corporate America.
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".
