Jonathan Weisiger -- or "J-Dub" as his friends and family call him -- was 5-years-old the first time he went to the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo. And during that visit, everything clicked. "I just remember the cowboys, the cowgirls, the bucking horses, the cattle -- every aspect," said Weisiger, who is now 40. "I thought, yeah, these are my people. This is what I'm gonna do." He's worked with horses ever since.
A recent article in the New York Times is raising some eyebrows within the law enforcement community here in North Texas. The story, entitled "The U.S. Has Fewer Crimes. Does That Mean It Needs Fewer Police? ", notes that while there are more officers per capita today than in 1991, when FBI data shows violent crime peaked, they deal with the half the number of crimes per capita that they did back then. "Hardly anyone questions the size of police forces," the article states.
Closed by its former owner and in desperate need of repairs, Mansfield's historic Farr Best Theater seemed poised to make its final curtain call. Now, nearly a year after the city swooped in and purchased the century-old building, they're hopeful the theater's best days are ahead of it. "I hope that this is a space that can make the arts really accessbile to everyone in our community," said Rosalie Gilbert, Cultural Arts Supervisor for the City of Mansfield.
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".
