The San Antonio Express-News has finished its daily history series leading up to the start of our Tricentennial year. Since April 2, we’ve been running local history stories every day and you can find them on our subscriber site, ExpressNews.com/SA300. That’s 274 full-page features in 2017, exploring everything from the role water played in our city’s development and growth of the influence of the military, business, people and communities on who we are today. But we aren’t done.
Something longtime San Antonio residents know that newcomers and tourists probably don’t: The city hasn’t always centered its holiday light spectacle on the River Walk. Before the River Walk was a thing, and before downtown business owners and civic leaders banded together to actively try to attract more customers to stores such as Joske’s, the Christmas lights decked Houston Street.
Alamo artifacts discovered since 1960 on display at one-day ‘Archaeology at the Alamo’ exhibitAs the one-day “Archaeology at the Alamo” exhibit opened Thursday, journalists, archaeologists, local officials and curious Alamo fans leaned over glass cases lining the back of Alamo Hall, peering in to see artifacts from around the Alamo and as far away as La Villita that only professionals in the business of digging up treasures with a link to history have seen.
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".
