In less than 100 days, the 2018 Winter Olympics will be in full swing. Team USA says it's never too early to start building excitement for the games, which is why they're bringing the Olympic spirit to Downtown Dallas Saturday. Team USA WinterFest will take over Klyde Warren Park from 11:00am - 5:00pm. The free event will feature live music, a S'mores truck, as well as interactive exhibits that give fans a taste of what it's like to be a winter athlete.
A theater arts professor, a mechanical engineering student, and a small robot all meet in a classroom. That's not the opening line of an obscure joke -- it's what actually happens inside UT-Arlington's new Emotional Robotics Living Lab. "When we look at them, I think that's part of why we're sort of wired to connect to these machines," said Dr. Julienne Greer, an assistant professor of theater arts and social robotics at UTA, who also serves as the lab's director.
There are Christmas light displays, and then there's "Enchant" â€” a Texas-sized illuminated spectacle that's bound to take breaths away. For more than six weeks, producer Gabe Hoffart and his team have worked tirelessly in a large parking lot just north of Globe Life Park to bring the attraction to life. When it's all said and done, they'll have hung more than 2.5 million Christmas lights. "That's a lot of lights," laughed Hoffart. "In all, there's about 110 semi trucks' worth of stuff here."
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".
